Modest aromas of generic berry, bell pepper and hazelnuts with earth undertones. For the price it is interesting enough but the nose is marred by the bell pepper which, in a Cabernet, is a sign of under-ripe grapes. The medium- bodied palate adds vanilla and cocoa notes but the lack of fruit intensity is not sufficient to balance the tart, sour acidity on the finish. The absence of tannins leaves a wine with little structure. A drinkable everyday wine that doesn’t give a lot of pleasure.
But finding pleasure in the ordinary is the way of happiness. Listening to Bono’s lovely paean to Ordinary Love will make this wine taste like Petrus.
