Produced & Bottled by Zolo
The 2018 Zolo Cabernet Sauvignon begins with an pleasing and intriguing aroma of dark berry fruit with a bit of a spicy, leathery, almost nutty note.
Taking a sip reveals ripe berry fruit, more leather, nice spice and a smooth mouthfeel. It develops quite well with time in the glass – I wasn't sure about it when I first popped and poured but it really came together after a couple hours.
It ends a bit grippy with a surprisingly long finish. This is a solid, tasty Cab that is definitely worth the low price.
