Domaine Bousquet Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2013 Review

The classically red-fruited Cabernet Sauvignon gets a boost from a dose of Malbec, making the palate more syrupy-sweet than the average Cab drinker expects. The nose is a bit confected but bright, with an herbal quality and rustic earthiness. Good for lovers of South American wines, but too heavy on the fruit.
