Schild Estate 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
Nice expression of fruit, with black cherry, black raspberry, cocoa, mint and cedar notes. Palate is consistent with the nose, with warming spice, vanilla, black fruit and more. A very pretty and welcoming wine that at first sip seems simple, but further examination shows greater depth. Drink now or over the near term.
- Alberta: $26
