7. Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon (2011)

« Prev 7 of 7
Previously available for $7.99
A bit muted on the nose with subtle but attractive aromas of black fruits, violets, woodsmoke, and a hint of mint and rosemary. Big, round and polished in the mouth, this delivers ripe yet fresh black currant and plum fruit gentle framed with clean, fresh oak. The balance is attractive for a wine of this size, smooth yet firm enough though allowing the fruit to retain attractive transparency. This is a bit simple but it’s also a bit subtle at the same time with a hint of peppery spice emerging on the backend along with some floral character that both add a little detail to the moderately long if slightly hot finish. I could this getting a little better with 6 months to a year in the bottle. 86pts
