Cabernet Sauvignon – Earthbound 

Cabernet Sauvignon – South Africa – 2015

In my attempt to try so many other different kinds of wines, I have forgotten to rate and drink more of the classic Cabernet Sauvignon.

It is one of the most popular ones and yet it is an acquired  taste. It is usually well layered and high in tannin. I believe that is were the necessity to mix it with Merlot arises, and we get Bordeaux or  other mixes. Once you know what you are getting into when you have it, then you are sure to enjoy it.

As expected, it is well formed and with a nice bold attitude, however it is too young and lacks of maturity, but it was not disappointing.

Fruitiness: 3.0 /5

Sourness: 4.0/5

Tannin: 4.2 /5

Style:  medium

Body: 4 /10 

[Note: Fruitiness, sourness and tannin, are a red wine characteristics, they do not define the quality of a wine]

Found in: Carrefour
