Food Pairings for Humanitas Cabernet Paso'
I received this as a free sample from Humanitas Wines, as part of Twitter Taste Live. Night OneToast and hazelnuts open the nose. Black fruit appears once you get all the way into the glass, along with some vanilla.On the palate, the fruit is very jammy up front, full of plums and blackberries. That is followed almost immediately with chocolate, a lot of chocolate. Tannins are fine and dusty. It sweetens significantly on the mid-palate. It turns to brown sugar and vanilla, clear evidence of a lot of oak. Is it too much oak? Let's give it a second night before we decide.Night TwoThe nose changed completely from Night One to Night Two. Now it showed blackcurrant, eucalyptus and a little cinnamon.The palate was different too. There was still plenty of dark fruit, blackberry, plum skins, and a little blueberry. The chocolate was still there, too, milk chocolate. Tannins were very fine and added leather to the mid-length finish.This was a nice bottle of wine. It was not, on Night Two, overpoweringly sweet and sugary. With significant decanting, or even better some years in the cellar, this promises to be a nice wine.
Candied cherry, sugarplum, and sweet oak aromas on first opening, with cherry and blackberry fruit. Cedary-cinnamon notes in the finish, and a lovely, silky texture. As it opens, the wine becomes spicier but never looses its plush approachability. Nice wine.
