Alterra Cabernet Sauvignon Winemaker's Reserve Spring Mountain District 2008

Member Review by EMark:

Very dark plum color in the glass. Pretty "tannic" nose. Very pleasant as it spreads over the tongue and palate. "Sweet" is the initial tongue sensation--currant flavors, maybe, blackberry. As the wine moves through the palate, those Spring Mountain tannis take over. This wine could probably age for years. Acid tartness follows the tannin sensation, especially, way in the back of the palate. This is my kind of wine, although, I suspect that I might be in the minority on that. US$19.99 at Total WInes.
