Piattelli Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Wine SpectatorA savory red, with a tightly wrapped core of dried cherry, mineral and roasted plum flavors, showing notes of hot stone and forest floor on the firm finish. Drink now through 2018. 475 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastRooty, stalky, earthy aromas are spread wide and thin. This Cab has a gritty feel and hard tannins. Stalky flavors of coffee grinds are herbal and tough, while heat, sauciness and tomato-leaf flavors suggest cool-climate origins. Overall this is racy and cool in style; drink now.
