Desert Wind Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Inky dark in color with an odd nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some strong black berries coming through. There’s some slight sweetness to the wine. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice velvety tannins and smooth acidity and firm dryness. The wine has a very odd flavor, not a typical cab. I found myself scratching things about it. Honestly, if I had more I would return them. I would give it an 87 or so … Yuk
