This Cabernet Sauvignon from Central Coast in California, is drinking very nicely now, although still young.
Showing black fruits with wood, vanilla, earth, spices, chocolates, coke, light vegetables, Indian spices, violets, tobacco leaf and black pepper.
Dry on the palate, full bodied and elegant.
Grippy tannins (once it opens up), on the finish with tangy raspberries.
This is a very nice Cabernet Sauvignon. I had it before, but apparently did not let it open up all the way. Really enjoyed the mouthfeel.
Needs 3 hours to open up properly and come to itself, so be patient.
Would be nice to revisit it in 3 to 5 years.
Nice to see this kind of wine from California at such a low octane.
13.8% alcohol by volume.

Bota Box has always delivered, in terms of boxed wines. This Nighthawk Chardonnay stands firm from the get go. Yep, it’s buttery. But, aromas of cooked apple and caramel ease it into the palate. This Cali white is bold, but doesn’t bite. The oak is softened. Paired it with a creamy, cheesy tuna noodle casserole and it was very good. — 24 days ago
