Casella Wines [yellow tail] The Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Why the hell not?

Very clean on the nose, and very correct too. This is textbook Cabernet, with some dusty leaf, some dark fruit and cedar oak. It’s also textbook in the sense that it feels a bit detached and clinical — if beauty relies on flaws, this wine’s aroma never quite approaches a sense of the beautiful because it’s just so correct. Not to linger too much on this point; there’s something to be said for a wine without distractions.
