Finca Flichman Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Total Wine & More, $5.99

Aaron: When writing tasting notes on this cab I found myself contradicting my historic preferences.  Similarly, I describe the nose as masculine but with a hint of floral.  The smell was bold and almost overpowering; I imagined berries being ground on stone because there was a fruity smell mixed with a rocky undertone.  After overcoming my fascination with this imagery I tasted the mild, smooth flavor.  I felt a slight bite on the tip of my tongue at the first sip but interestingly not on the swallow.  Beyond the mellowness this was not overly complex and had an almost earthy sense but I found it pleasant.  Also, I did not taste berries (which I generally prefer) but I honestly didn’t mind. 89 points

Teri: I classify this wine as “warm.” This is not quite a technical term but the best I could come up with. This strange descriptor means that when drinking it I found it to provided a very nice full and round taste that provided a very nice warmth. It has smooth full tannins with a mixture of floral and fruit flavors. I could drink this wine over and over for a long period of time. 87 points
