Trapiche Oak Cask Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Nose of blackberry, raspberry, and cedar

Dense structure on the palate

Finish of berries, cocoa, herbs, and some spice

This is what $10 Cabernet Sauvignon should taste like! It offers nice fruit layers, a sturdy structure, and well-integrated accents of cedar, cocoa, and herbs. I think this wine is better than any Chilean Cab in the ten dollar range.

The nose has a bit of alcohol that burns off given a little time in the glass. Other than that, I'm impressed. Raise a glass!
