Fox Run Cabernet Sauvignon 2016: $25 Very Good

The Fox Run Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon (Finger Lakes, NY) 2016 $25 [Very Good] has pure medium-intense flavors and a compact and linear mouth feel.  Drink it with dinner or snacks.

Medium ruby in color, a somewhat tart nose features scents of black cherry, sour cherry, dark chocolate, charcoal and lead pencil.  It is strongly reminiscent of chocolate covered cherries at times.  Medium bodied, with above average acidity and unobtrusive tannin, balance is good.  Flavors of black and sour cherry, oaky/tobacco notes, dark chocolate and herbs are tight and focused with good concentration.  The finish is tight, balanced, a bit saline, with good to very good length.  February 2018
