The Original Dark Horse California Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 




My Rating 88 Points.   

Price $9.



Beautiful dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Nice nose of black currants, sweet cherries, licorice, vanilla, oak, cloves, spices, leather, earth, milk chocolate, metals, mocha, acetone and black pepper.

Medium plus in body and jammy, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, dark chocolate, coffee, mocha, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and spices.

This California Cabernet is a great everyday wine. Nicely balanced and not very complex, but at a great price.

Would benefit from one more year in the bottle as it is a little tight at this stage.

Enjoyable by itself or with food like BBQ Meats.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
