Cabernet Sauvignon on Snooth

  • Riunite Raspberry Riunite Raspberry

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet wet after dinner wine that has a slight scent of raspberry and a whole lot of raspberry flavour. Good balance, not overly candy sweet (like DeKuyper's Razzmatazz) and only a hit of tart bite. A bit light on alcohol flavour, this is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for sangria sippers and fruit cocktail consumers. Read More

  • Trespass Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Estate Grown 2001

    Snoothrank:

    My brother-in-law found this at an estate sale. Clearly not a great wine, but, certainly, a fun find. When I opened it I could not believe the color--the red plum color that you would expect--no bricking at all. A somewhat fruity nose with a bit of sourness. On the tongue, flavors of dried dark fruit. Very much resolved tannins and acids. ... Read More
