Let's get down to brass tacks. This Cabernet Sauvignon is about the purity of the varietal flavors and California terroir. Brass Tacks Cabernet Sauvignon offers classic rich layers of currant, cherry and blackberry fruit that is framed by nicely integrated oak, which adds a touch of spice. This small lot Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from California's Central Coast that is influenced by the Pacific Ocean. This maritime influence creates an extended growing season that yields wines with full flavor development and great acid balance.
Food Pairings: Pair Cabernet Sauvignon with steak and other red meats, pastas with red sauce, lamb, strong cheeses and chocolate.
Brass Tacks Cabernet Sauvignon. Had this with grilled tri-tip steak. Fairly fruit-forward with ripe, juicy black currant and black cherry, some cedar and tobacco notes, a medium-full body and enough oak on the finish to match well with the grilled steak. Nice wine and drinking well now.
Amazing for a $15 cab. Worth the list of $20. Glad it is back in stock! Found it better than Chateau St. Michelle's 2008 Indian Wells.
Love the cherry nose! This wine tastes of nice ripe fruit. Has flavors of blackberry and plum with a bit of chocolate and leather, too. Lots of finesse finishing with soft tannins. A lot of wine for the price. Really good QPR.
