2011 Kacaba Single vineyard Merlot

I enjoy Kacaba wines. They have consistently been one of my favorites. There wines are reasonably priced and well made. I submit this one as a perfect example. Dark in color with a nose of dark berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays a hint of plum and lots of black cherries. On the finish the wine displays some fine tannins and some lovely complex dryness. This is best experienced at least a little on it’s own (without food). We paired it with cornish hen along with some spicy sweet potato fries and you really missed a lot of the lovely complexity with this particular food. It wasn’t a good choice. I would give the wine an 89-90. It was $18 at the winery, looks like it’s all gone. Yumm!
