John Glaetzer John's Blend No 38 Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


We have been panning for gold in a local IGA supermarket among a vinous sea of brands in the $10 to $30 price range from the corners of the continent.  John Glaetzer's wines are always very good, and therefore an easy if not local choice.  The 2012 cabernet sauvignon from Langhorne Creek has aromatics of licorice, dark olive and that typical cabernet leafy character of cabernet sauvignon grown in that region.  The palate is soft and full bodied, with between medium and long length.  

Rating: Good to Very Good
Abv: 14.5%
