Westerly 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon (Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara)

Black plum and elderberry conspire with smoky cola, shaved chocolate and rustic licorice aromas on the nose of this bottling. The sip starts softly before stiffer tannic structure takes hold, bringing forth flavors of dried plum, reduced soy sauce and a slightly bitter charcoal touch, all lifted by buoyant acidity: very dark without being overly ripe.
