Rock & Vine Three Branches Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012

010It seemed sinful to drink this 2012 in 2014. The wine has legs and could stand another year or two waiting. Worth having a few to lay down and compare notes over the next three years. It was heady with strong, powerful flavours of cedar and leather with light fruit notes. Every inch a cabernet sauv. A perfect pairing with some NY steaks, but a tad premature on the palate. At the price point, if you aren’t cellaring, there are better options, even at the government stores.

 

Price: A real bargain in the US, $25 at Everything Wine in Vancouver.

 

Market Liquidity: If you can keep it down, keep it down.
