Trying out my new Zalto Bordeaux glasses with Cali cab. This wine is easy peasy. It will not challenge you but sometimes that’s okay. Very ripe tannins and purpley fruit and there is a whiff of pepper to give a little edge. I have a feeling this may be a highly engineered act but I guess that’s why it’s a Freakshow.

Nice and big and rich slight spice on the finish and peppery. Probably falls apart when it has air.

What a gorgeous Cabernet this is.

Dark ruby in color with a purple rim.

Gorgeous on the nose, with blueberries, blackberries, violets, black currants, cedar, smoke, vanilla, licorice, eucalyptus, Herbs, spices and peppercorn.

Bold and full-bodied and jammy, with gorgeous legs and medium acidity.

Fruity on the palate with blackberries, figs, raisins, red currants, cherries, Cola, licorice, chocolate, herbs, cedar, spices and black pepper.

Long finish with soft, round tannins and spices.

A Great Cabernet from one of my favorite wineries. At its peak right now, so enjoy it, sooner than later. enjoyable by itself or with grilled meats.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Round tannins that really envelope the tongue. Smooth as can be with ripe black cherries.

Hard to beat for a 16 dollar bottle of wine. The word "juice" comes to mind, but I've had 25 dollar bottles that weren't as good.
