Casarena Esencia 505 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Good red-ruby. Currant, licorice and bitter chocolate on the rather brooding nose; less fruity than the malbec. Then densely packed and lightly saline, and distinctly forthcoming today. Offers less lift at present than the 2012 Malbec 505 but more extract. Chewy, building tannins call for a couple years of patience..." IWC 04/13

My Rating 87: Wine is reasonable firm with only a hint of sweet. not very complex. Godd nose with some interesting nuances. Paid about $ 9 at Costco

Disappointing. Nose is slightly sweet, soft tannins. My issue was with the bitter finish. Compared to the previous casarena cab (non 505) which was an excellent value, this variety falls short.
