X-Winery Cabernet Sauvignon – from the wine virgin

I was really excited for this wine. For one I’ve never had an X-Winery wine and I’ve always seen them in the shop, and I love Cabs. X-Winery Cabernet Sauvignon did not disappoint. The flavor was very deep and bold, like many cabs. It had the smell and flavor of a deep berry or plum, and of course, pepper and spice was very evident.

This particular cab was a tad different than most I have had in two ways. The tannic acids seemed to be vamped up a bit. It was still delicious because of all the flavors, and I appreciated how complex it was. Also, there was a bit of strong cocoa in the finishing which made for a fun and interesting end. I definitely liked this wine and am very eager to try some more from X-Winery.
