Top 7 Cabernets Tasted 10/13

7. Cabernet Riserva Mumelter DOC Kellerei Bozen (2010)

« Prev 7 of 7
Previously available for $40.00
Nuttty oak greets the nose along with hints of pipe tobacco, spicy wild black berries, black currants a little spicy dried mushroom and lightly toasted spices. This is smooth in the mouth though the initial polish gives way to a grippy little mid-palate ripe with fruit skin tannins. There’s good depth to the fruit, which flashes some mineral nuance on the palate along with hints of toasty oak framing the core of dry, firm and somewhat tight black currant and black plum fruit. This is rather spicy when it comes to Cabernet, rich and ripe yet lean with excellent snap on the palate and a finish that is driven a bit but the oak but delivers a long, fresh if dark fruit impression as well. Theres lovely purity to the fruit, great balance and attractive complexity here though it does show some heat on the finish. 91pts

  • 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.
