Tsantali Cabernet Sauvignon Organic 2005

Member Review by Lindy Hemsley:

A classic cabernet . . . from Greece. Nose is blackcurrant and mint. Palate starts a little full but is quickly tempered by good acid and tannin balance. Silky texture. Excellent value.

This comes from the Greek region of Halkidiki, which I can’t help thinking sounds like something R2D2 would say. A Greek Cabernet Sauvignon – when CJ heard what I was drinking, he said “I admire your moxie, kid.” Whereas Olly Smith said, “Quaff it with steak, chops and top-quality bangers,”. Not sausages, you note, or even loukaniki; but “bangers”... Well, it’s a competent, straightforward Cabernet Sauvignon; that slightly burnt aroma, but a bit flat in the mouth; a little brief resonance on the palate… but then gone. No richness, no complexity, no grip. Perfectly OK, and with a hefty 14.5% alcohol, which will assist the goblet-waving; but for £9, I’m afraid I expect something a little more memorable.

Well balance, high tannins and good barrel nose and flavour. Excelent value!
