Besadien 2016 Cabernet SauvignonIn Fine Spirits
John Grochau was initially bitten by the 'wine bug' while pursuing a professional bicycle-racing career in France. He was limited by the shoestring budget of a racer and a rigorous training regimen, but enjoyed the intrinsic role wine played in most meals. Dark cassis, prune, vanilla bean, chocolate covered raspberries. The palate has a nice full mouthfeel that one would call medium plus on the body and a dusty vanilla/cocoa powder finish that has some grippy tannins.
