District 7 Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Dark in color with a mild nose, some oak coming through. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice vibrant black cherries and cassis. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice tannins and acidity. There’s also a hint of pepper and some hot alcohol notes when tasted without food. This is not a bad cab for the price at all. There are NO herbal, green or astringent notes that I find off putting. I would give it an -88. I would consider this more of a drink now, although some breathing would help. The LCBO say full bodied and firm, that depends on whether it’s with or without food for me …

California is divided into 17 grape crush districts, encompassing a wide range of climate, terrain and soil types. District 7 is Monterey County, home to world-class vineyards and exceptional wines. This one boasts excellent balance and integration between the cherry and raspberry fruit and vanilla and oak spice tones. Fruity with an underlying black pepper complexity, this will be a good option for roast pork with prunes. (Vintages panel, Feb. 2019)[The Harvest Challenge did not include a tasting note.] Score – 93. (Harvest Challenge, 2018)Read More
