2009 Hyperion Cabernet Sauvignon

100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 12 months in American oak. 2009 is considered a great vintage in Romania.

2009 Hyperion Cabernet Sauvignon

Dark red garnet color. The nose is undeveloped, oaky, with youthful aromas of red fruits and yoghurt. A medium to full bodied wine, with good Cabernet typicality, balanced and well structured on the palate, with flavors of red fruits, blackcurrant, green bell pepper, cedar and firm tannins . The finish is medium plus long, a bit spicy, very dry, with grippy tannins and modest complexity. (84-85/100)

At this stage, I find no Cab typicality on the nose, as a matter of fact it seems more of a generic nose to me, and the oak still has to blend in. The wine tastes better than it smells, but the finish is a bit aggressive.
