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.

In a really great place after a quick decant. Scents of Black cherries, leather, dried herbs. Raspberries, cranberries, and a bit of cigar box. Still a bit hot, but tannins are starting to integrate. Nice long finish. Expectations were exceeded!

This is a great QPR cab I found recently at $52. Double decanted and poured...Upfront you catch a whiff of cherry and tobacco. Taste of luscious cassis & berry followed by mellow oak. Slightly acidic & tangy. The structure is there. A unique and well made Cabernet. Great weekend or dinner find!
