Powell and I bottled our Cabernet Sauvignon last night. We noticed very much that at this stage it feels like a young wine. It still tastes/smells a bit like yeast, which isn't necessarily bad.
The tannins are very nice in this wine. If I could do it, I'd probably like to have the same level in the scuppernong wine.
The wine looks a little watery, and feels a little weak on the palate. I think that's the kind of thing that aging fixes. There is still a fruity semi-sweet aspect that is pleasant and not overwhelming. It's definitely right to characterize this wine as 'young'. Did I say that already?
Overall, I'm pleased with this wine. I'm excited to start another.
