Trapiche Oak Cask Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Wine Review (NW)
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!
