Mirassou Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon California 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweet jammy blueberry and blackberry fruit greets the nose followed by sweet wood spice, coffee grinds and some dried herb notes. This is pretty low acid and also shows slightly cooked black cherry and pruny flavors of over-ripe fruit. The mid-palate drops out a bit though this continues to deliver rather powerful if slightly cooked black fruits framed with a hint of herbaceousness and a little sweet wood spice. The finish is short, tough and a little sweet. 80pts

Displays deep rich blackberry and black currant flavors. These primary flavors are complimented with secondary flavors of vanilla, hints of spice, dark chocolate, black pepper, and elegant licorice and cocoa aromas. This Cbaernet is full bodied with a soft finish of moderate length. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within a year of release, but should be able to age in the bottle for up to three years
