Fortress Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Review

Well aren't you adorbs. Here we have a really nice American Cab that’s wrapped up in a nice little package checking off all the boxes; and it’s only a little over twenty bucks. Dark fruit vibes, check. Cracked black pepper woven in, check. Good tannin structure that is prominent but blended well, check. If you bring this to any gathering let’em know who brought it and tell’em VinePair sent ya.
