Review: ***+ $$ Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon, California, 2013 = GOOD VALUE

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

Original tasting and review : This is Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon, California, 2013, finished at 13.8% alcohol and first sampled 2 years from vintage date, in February, 2015.

In the glass: Black reddish purple, opaque from a quarter inch of the edge.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows funky, inverted stewed raisin fruit.  From the aroma, it is hard to anticipate the flavors.  Seems like there's a lot of "punch" in reserve.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact full-fruited deep black cherry and very ripe blackberry, with some furry tannins creeping around the edges and lending a relatively lengthy, though clean finish.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, and just touches a plus for its pleasant power, making this a good value.
