The 2009 Tilia Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark purple color with ruby red tones. The nose is full of ripe red fruits, sweet spice and a touch of tobacco. The mouthfeel shows red currant and cassis fruit layered with notes of cedar and espresso bean. The finish is soft and sweet, with finely grained tannins adding structure and length.
I was impressed with the smoothness, and great quality of this Cab, and the price is unbeatable. I usually spend double the price for my everyday Cabs, and was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have to compromise flavor at this price point.
Was not as heavy as we usually like our Cabs to be. We like our Cabs almost opaque, this was too light. The taste had nothing horribly wrong. It was very simple and to me it tasted more like a cheaper Pinot or Malbec. Sweeter than a cab should be. I liked it but know many better wines in this price range. I don't need to buy it again for a few years but would if i found myself with in a store with limited selection. I also would buy again just because of the sustainability practices. I have to give them some points there! Good wine to introduce white wine drinkers or beginner wine drinkers to red.
After being open for an hour it has a nice aroma of berry fruit with just a hint of vegetal. The taste starts with fruit then has that South American earthy flavor. Finish is dry and medium length
