Attila Gere Cabernet Sauvignon Villány 2007
Cabernet Sauvignon from Hungary? You better believe it! This is a serious, Bordeaux-style wine that will knock your socks off. Deep notes of cedar and cassis lead to a wonderfully complex palate full of bitter chocolate, cocoa bean, espresso, tobacco leaf, and rich black and red cherry fruit. Boasts a tight core of acidity and finely-grained tannins that lend a great tactile appeal to the wine. This is something you DO NOT want to pass up!
Ruby red in color with just a hint of rust at the edges. Blackberry and cassis on the nose. Smells like a classic old world Cabernet/Bordeaux. On the palate, you get blackberry and cassis again, but with an overriding and dominant dark black cherry flavor. The tannins were present but after the wine had time to open up. Nice length to the finish.
Three and a half glasses
