Concha Y Toro Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012

Very good.  There is really nothing to nitpick about; smooth and supple, cedar and sharp maraschino on the palate, a light note of licorice, quite delectable.  Heartily food friendly.  The 14.5 per cent alcohol dissipates with a lightness you wouldn’t anticipate in Cab Sauv (but will haunt your head the next morning).  Honestly, quite good. Is it interesting, provocative or distinguished?  Not so much.  Like that gorgeous actress in that exquisite dress with Harry Winston jewels on loan, captivating on the red carpet, but forgettable in that movie.  What was that movie she was in?
