2010 Canyon Oaks Cab Sauv

Vinexx hosted a tasting event at Martini house in Burlington. This wine is on their by the glass menu at $10 for a 6 oz pour so I thought I’ve give it a whirl. Dark in color with a lovely nose of red berries, mostly cherry. On the mid pallet this wine is a fruit forward California style Cab with Cherries abounding. The wine is medium in length on the finish with some tannins and a smooth flavor that builds nicely in the mouth. I was shocked to discover the wine is only $12.95 a bottle available from Vinexx in cases of 12. A very nice wine. I would give it an 89 or so. I would not expect this to age all that well. More of a drink now feel to it.
