I'm guessing there are a few reading this thinking "It's an 08 Cabernet why don't you allow the wine to age awhile?" Good point but then what fun would that be for me :) What a wonderful nose on this wine. When first poured in the glass a huge lucious dark cherry aroma fills the nose. Fresh plum greets you on your next swirl and finishes with a rich spice.
Excellent flavor! The taste starts you off with a ripe fruit berry jam sensation (dark cherry, blackberry, plumb, hint of red raspberry) which was tremendously delicious. Towards the middle a hint of chocolate and finishes with just a touch of spice and oak. While this was my first wine from Black Stallion it won't be my last.
