Joseph Carr 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, $16.99-$24,99, 86 points, was a more crushed black currant purple/red with a broader wine ring than the 2010 vintage.
The shy nose showed hints of blackberry, cocoa, and toasty grape notes.
Near full-bodied, fair acidity, and moderately layered tannin carried a fruit-forward flavor profile, with a rather weak mid to late-palate.
Finished a bit short on plum and mulberry, lacked complexity, and its 14.1% alcohol was innocuous, but as an unobtrusive red table-wine I have no complaint.
Varietals were Cabernet Sauvignon with 4% Merlot.
