Cabernet Sauvignon on Snooth

  • Quivet Cellars Kenefick Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very much an earthy nose. Light hit of black currant on introduction. Then, maybe something like clove. Dustiness re-appears mid-palate. However, leather may be a better description. Tannin kind of sneaks up on you. Its not until the rear palate that it becomes noticeable. Fairly tartbut thats a good thing for some of us. Read More
