Storypoint Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, California 

My Rating 89 Points.   

Price $15. 

 

Here, before you, is my Friday’s Cabernet fix. 😃

Deep purple in color with a purplish rim.

Great fruity nose with blackberries, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, leather, earth, spices, peppercorn, light vegetables, coffee, mocha and dark chocolates.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, figs, raisins, smoke, vanilla, wood, spices, leather, earth, chocolates, peppercorn and espresso.

Long finish with firm tannins and black pepper.

This is a great Cabernet Sauvignon from Lake County, California. Balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food, with nice acidity to make it interesting.

Not very complex but enjoyable nonetheless. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up.
Seems like an inexpensive Napa lookalike. Yummy.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
