My wine tasting notes, both current releases and older wines from my cellar.

2004 McMainis Family Vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon, California

Dark. Cherry and plum aromas. Black cherry and mineral fruit flavors, low acid, soft tannins, and a long fruity finish. This is a big, flabby young wine. It has intense fruit flavors, but lacks structure. I don’t like it even for current drinking, but my wife liked it. I paid $8, so it may be a good value for those who like this style of wine. I tried this because the retailer claimed Parker praised this wine and it was only $8. My rating 75.
