Top 7 Cabernets Tasted 10/13

6. Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon (2011)

« Prev Next » 6 of 7
Average price: $36.99 from 50 stores
Bright and fruity on the nose with lovely lift to the red plum, smoky oak, coriander, mineral and smoky paprika and dried pork aromas. Smells like cabernet and really good lomo. Bright and pinched on entry with lovely fruit tannins early on the palate. This is awfully young and a bit compressed today but it feels rather lively and bright, and perhaps a smidge under-ripe in the world of modern cabernet, which is fine by me. Not a powerhouse and rather transparent on the palate with some mineral edges and a nicely judged base of wood supporting the fruit along with some peppery and floral nuances. This is young, a bit simple and with slightly unripe tannins but at the same time it’s fresh and bright and pretty easy to drink. Not for everyone but lovely in its own right. 90pts

  • 1347763Keith Rector The only thing I agree with in the article is that you don't have to buy $30 or much less $40 Cabernets to get great wines. That price range only fits a very small group of wine buyers. Search out the $20 - $25 Napa Cabs that are not only great, but scores of 90+ pts. *Conn Creek Napa Cab. $17.99 *Franciscan Napa Cab. $17.99 *Simi Alex. V. Cab. $17.99 These are just a few of the outstanding wine specials I am buying now at my favorite Wine Store. Search & you will find.
