Desert Wind Washington State 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, $15.29-$18.99, 90+ points, poured an opaque maroon and trended a crushed black currant toward the transparent rim and leggy glass wall.
Aromatic subtle/soft smells of blackberry, cedar, earth, and flowers were very pleasant.
The medium-plus body was unusually crisp and tasty with good acidity, layered fine tannins, and a well balanced flavor profile of mulberry, blueberry, tart pomegranate, cola, mint, and black tea.
Finished long on easy spice notes with some warmth from the 14.5% alcohol.
Desert Wind is a lovely Cabernet Sauvignon with a high QPR!
