Giradet Vineyards & Winery 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

This Cabernet from some of the oldest vines on the Giradet estate offers complex aromas and a lovely dry balance on the palate, leaning Old World in style. On the nose, it alludes to blackberry cobbler with notes of jammy dark fruit mixed with baking spices, along with hints of sweet tobacco, black pepper, vanilla and licorice. On the palate, fruit is nicely balanced with earthy notes. Flavors of black cherry are mixed with leather, cocoa, a nice streak of graphite and a hint of clay dust on dry, earthy finish. - Reviewed by Gary Hayes -
