Tonight's wine is a 2012 John Anthony Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose gives notes of black currant, black raspberry, tar, and black tea. On the palate I get black cherry, black raspberry, currant, plum and a little wet soil. There is medium + acidity and medium soft tannins. Just a little on the lighter side than I liked but overall a nice wine.

Young with lots of great red and black fruit with firm tannins and a long finish.

I really really enjoyed this bottle. Popped and poured and drank beautifully well. Soft tannins, nice fruit and good finish.

A rich, interesting cab. Interesting nose, with tobacco, chocolate/coffee and maybe a cinnamon note. Almost crunchy mouthfeel. Nicely made. At Brian's for Christmas.

Coco, current, raspberry, huckleberry...will improve with 5-8 years. Good amount to grow.
