Howard Park 2005 Scotsdale Cabernet Sauvignon (Great Southern)

This may turn out better in time than I've given it credit for, but at the moment it seems a bit tough and overly firm on the finish. Perfumed cedar and cassis aromas are promising, and the flavors offer hints of dried herbs and tobacco as well. Try now with rare beef or lamb, or hold 5-7 years and see if the tannins come into better balance. Imported by Blue Water Wine Company. Joe Czerwinski
