The rewards and frustrations of home winemaking

Carmenere/Cab Sauv 8 Month Tasting

Did not decant, probably would benefit from decanting at this stage. Not foamy, seem to finally have that under control. Big nose of red ripe fruits with sour edge. Very clear, dark garnet in color. Slightly fizzy on the tongue, with very tart flavors of sour cherry and pomegranite. Mainly fruity, very light spice, medium tannins. Weird lingering aftertaste, not bad, just weird. Definitely still needs cellar time, but not bad at all.
