Encantado Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine is a deep, inky purple color in the glass edging toward some lighter ruby. The nose is rather oak laden with a hint of green cedar, with some dark fruit notes mixed in. The taste is really quite nice, with a veritable explosion of dark, jammy fruit up front, plum, blackberries and a hint of cocoa that transitions nicely to some dusty limestone midpalate. The tannins are remarkably mellow for such a young wine, and the velvety, rounded mouthfeel makes for a long, dry and quite pleasant finish.

luscious red fruit, soft tannins and very easy to drink. One of my favorites ~20.
