Carnivor Wines 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon - 85pts

Carnivor 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon (California) USA

Availability: Widely available at BCLDB stores
Cost: $16-18
Alcohol: 13.9%
Date Tasted: February 21st, 2014

Tasting Notes: This stain-your-teeth-purple hued Cabernet Sauvignon is an assemblage of focus-group tastes and attributes: sweet dark fruit, hints of added "complex" flavours, easy-drinking tannins, full-bodied mouth feel and enough acid to make your palate salivate for more. Surprisingly, it combines these attributes into a drinkable and reasonably Cabernet-ish styled wine rather well, though, without any passion or sense of place (or, potentially, any human intervention - seriously, this wine could have been made by robots). Drink now-2015.
