Pig & Poke Cabernet Sauvignon 2011


Aaron:  The raspberry and white pepper on the initial nose of this cab blended into some cinnamon and brown sugar.  The flavor was juicy but lacked the ripeness I expected.  There was noticeably smoky oak on the finish with a good balance of tannins but I felt the flavor was less than amazing.  89 points

Teri: With a strong smell (oak and blackberry) and noticeable tannins this cabernet sauvignon ends in a smooth finish with strong oak flavors. Not bad, but not too complex or much flavors to clearly describe. The closest I could get would be burnt raspberry and woody undertones. Flavors open up after some decanting. 88 points
