Xanadu Wines 2007 Next of Kin Cabernet Sauvignon - 88pts
Availability: Widely available at BCLDB stores
Date Tasted: June 29th, 2010
Tasting Notes: A solid, cool-climate Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaret River producer Xanadu Wines. Good concentration of cassis, dark cherry, vanilla and earth characters on the bright nose and well-balanced palate. Its only downfall is a lingering bitterness on the finish. However, this one fault is completely covered-up when served with food. Pair with BBQ ribs or spicy steak and your guests will think you poured the a 90-point wine - one that only cost you $15. Drink 2010-2013.
