Cz Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Nice chocolate and vanilla taste that lingers in your mouth. Excellent quality-price ratio.
Dry and oaky. lot of acidity.
Lots of heat on the nose here. Palate is juicy and fresh, with black olive, leather, drying tannins, loads of acidity, dark ripe blackberry fruit, and a hint of medicine on the finish.
Mild young wood notes in the aroma, the attack is balanced with good leading tannins, very smooth midpalate with nutty flavors, and a hot chalky finish.
Very light bouquet on the nose. Light body texture with toffee flavors that open up nicely in your tongue.
Nice but the taste dies quickly.

Chewy tannins and acidity combine to make for a lingering, fresh finish. Best served with characteristic red wine dishes, such as pizza, pasta, and red meat.</p>
