Stephen Brook

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Closed nose. Rich and rounded but a bit flabby, lacks energy and zest as the acidity is modest. Tannic and quite extracted, so there’s little finesse. A solid style that’s too burly for my taste. Quite long, with a chocolaty finish.

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Very intense, alcohol far too high. A lot of sweet fruits notes. Unbalanced due to alcohol.

David Motion

Tasting: Napa & Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

Strawberry jam with cinnamon. Bursting with baked fruit and spice. A surge of drying tannins. Very structured.
