Murphy-Goode Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Dark color with a nice cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice dark cherries to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some noticeable alcohol and some tannins and dryness. The wine is a bit green, a little young I would suspect. This is definitely a fruit forward drink now style cab. I would give it an 88 or so.
