Review: *** $ Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon, California, 2011 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon.

Original tasting and review : This is Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon, California, 2011, finished at 13.9% alcohol and vinted by Two Rock Winery, Modesto, California.

In the glass: Deep black magenta, opaque only an eighth of an inch from the edge.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows fresh, deep, black crushed fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be full of bright but bold fresh blackberry.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact much as anticipated, with bold black plum fruit accompanied by a touch of deepening tannin.  Ready to drink young, but offers bold layers even in its youth.  Finish shows Indian spice with the black fruit.

In summary: Overall, rates an easy three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, making this a solid best value.
