Tasting Notes : Like the summer of love in a bottle, the 2012 Salus Cabernet Sauvignon is an open and hedonistic wine characterized by generous aromas, flavors and textures. The enveloping and primary aromatics include vibrant raspberry, blueberry and ripe plum saturated in crème de cacao and Chambord liqueur with the slightest uplift of spearmint and nutmeg. The polished and plushly textured palate, like liquid velvet generously endowed with juicy black cherries and ripe blackberries dripping with heady milk chocolate and a dusting of espresso, is deepened with just the slightest dash of tamari. Though this is a wine driven more by plush and satisfying texture than structure, it finishes with wonderfully polished, pillow-y and fine-grained tannins and resonant aftertaste. Delightfully enjoyable now!
