Lange Twins 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon - Tasting Notes
Big thanks to Lange Twins for sending me a sample for the Twitter Calicabs tasting on 2/15.
This wine has a pleasant, translucent medium red-violet color that belies its medium body. There is a faint whiff of pencil lead, prominent ripe black cherry on the nose along with a hint of black plum. On the palate it has ripe fruit and relaxed tannins with well-balanced, well-integrated oak supporting the structure of the wine. I find it somewhat green and youthful in a spunky, good kind of way. Would probably become more subtle, complex and interesting with time. Lively mouthfeel. Acidic. Could probably handle a slight chill in its current "mood".
This is a pleasant, enjoyable wine and a good value at $15.
