3. Graffigna Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve (2008)

« Prev 3 of 3
Previously available for $18.39
This is rather subdued on the nose with any earthy base of oak, some gently minty and licorice top notes and a core of plummy black fruit. Round and rather lush on entry, this grows int he mouth with flavors that are a touch simple but very true to type. Rich black currant and spicy black cherry fruits are framed nicely by well integrated wood spice. There's a finely textured bed of supporting tannins here and bright acidity that keeps this fresh and juicy. The tannins show an edge of austerity on the finish, and more of a spicy wood tone, with the acid driving a nice blueberry fruit note right through t the finale. 88pts
