James Creek Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Somehow these relatively rare Cabernet's from Pope Valley show up in South Carolina for us to taste. Even though this 2011 is 4 years off the vine, it is still very young and closed. The color is super dark concentratede purple. The nose and the palate are only moderately fruity, both showing vanilla, oak and brooding dark fruit. This is one of Cabernet's that show a hint of menthol or eucalyptus. Solid and youthfull big oak. Very well balanced.
