Casabella HJ 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
So yes, I'm back, back to write colorful and sometimes lazy, colorless reviews on my favorite topic, Wine. To start off this revival of my wine wit let's go with an Italian Cabernet Sauvignon 2009. Here are my notes from when I tasted it.
Nose:On the nose, this wine had medium-plus intensity. Youthful fruit, cedar-box, sour-cherry, hints of candied strawberry, vanilla and anise.
Palate: Dry, medium body, sour sherry, strawberry, vanilla, cedar-box, medium-plus finish. Not overly complex but definitely good for the price. Great sour cherry and ripe plum on mid-palate. Medium plus tannins and medium alcohol.
Verdict: For the price this wine is very good. It's not an overly complex wine but it is consistent in its approach to your senses. If you get a chance try a bottle and please leave a comment with your own tasting notes, till then, see you next time.
