2014 Orquestra Cabernet Sauvignon

In-flight beverage, this 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Vino de la Tierra de Castilla, Spain. After sitting on the tarmac for more than an hour, I was grateful for any beverage and this dark red rang that bell.

Since I’ll fly American on several more trips before year’s end I’ll be sure to include additional notes next time. For now, I’ll say simply that the dark fruits come together effectively and leave a pleasant mouthfeel. Nice long finish, too.

Last note on this tasting: these grapes are grown at an altitude of 700 meters in the Castile La Mancha region where rainfall is scarce.
