(June 30, 2015) ... Not sure you could tell from the dates but I fell pretty far behind on these write ups this summer - too busy drinking, not enough writing ... I also had plenty of family visiting so I took this opportunity of a little peace and quiet in the house (before the next storm arrived) to enjoy a little California Cabernet. Ripe and ready from nose to tongue: aromas of cassis, black raspberry, and mocha all lead to a palate where that coffee comes thru, along with anise, a mixture of red and black currants, nice acidity, and a smoked-plum finish.
