Parducci Wine Cellars True Grit Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2014 Mendocino, California 


My Rating 85 Points.   

Price $20.
Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Strong fruity nose with black currants, cherries, blackberries, red candy, wild flowers, vanilla, oak, light vegetables, licorice, spices, light barnyard, chocolates, smoke, earth, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Medium bodied and gentle, with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, vegetables, cloves, coffee, smoke, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Medium finish with medium tannins and black pepper.

An above average Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendocino County, California. Spicy and balanced with mild complexity. Not too special, but drinkable nonetheless. A little lighter than I like or expected. Shows nice complexity on the nose. Good for everyday.

Good right out of the bottle and could use a couple of years in the bottle to mature. Needs 30 minutes to open up.
