Grafter Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Lot 18, $22Grafter Paso Cab Sav

Vivino Notes


Aaron:   I enjoyed this cab and Lot 18 continues to impress me.  The full berry nose had a nice blend of mocha to embody what I expect from a cab.  The flavor was dry with a distinct kick of pepper which “roared” in the mouth but in a good way.  Full bodied and bold with enough uniqueness to stand out, this bottle still carries enough berries to be pleasant.  Some mild smoke rounds out the finish with solid tannins. 91 points

Teri: This bottle has a pleasant strawberry-currant smell with firm but good tannins and a strong but not overpowering flavor. On the taste I noticed tobacco, coco, and dark raspberry with some green spinach and oak on the finish. This is a full cab to hold up to strong hearty meals. 90 points
