Dark in color with a nice black berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays blackberries to match the nose. On the medium length finish there’s some noticeable oak along with some tannins and acidity. Honestly this wine reminded me a lot of a Zinfandel. If I pretend this is a Zin it’s lovely. If I was looking for a cab, not so much. So if you can get your head around that then it’s a nice wine. The back of the bottle doesn’t say anything about the wine itself, more about the story, blah blah bah. Now I love when a wine has a good story but please tell me something about the wine … ANYTHING 🙂 I would give it an 88 or so.

Light Horse Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 — VINTAGES#: 479113
STYLE – Full-bodied & Firm
Woodsy with apparent aromas of blossom, pepper, and luscious Bing cherry. There are suggestions of tangerine as well. Vivid red berries and toasted oak frame the palate with a touch of cinnamon and red plum. Supple and smooth on the finish. Very Good. Strong Recommendation. Score – 89.
