Lenz Moser 2014 Klosterkeller Siegendorf Cabernet Sauvignon
92 points
$24.99
Dusty ruby black color. Spicy, meaty aromas and flavors of grilled sausages and green peppers, berry pie crust, and nougat with a silky, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, long caramelized carrots and figs, chocolate toffee, and cedar finish with crunchy, chewy, woody tannins and moderate oak. A savory, spicy, mouthwatering cabernet that will pair brilliantly.

Light color. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit, catbox, and taffy with an crisp, petillant, fruity medium body and a captivating, medium-long paloma and horchata finish with fruit tannins and no oak. A happy medium for those torn between sauvignon blanc and grüner.

Pale coral orange color. Fruity, baked aromas of strawberry pastry, lemon frosting, cantaloupe, and geranium with a satiny, tart, dry light-to-medium body and an interesting, cheery underripe berries, slate, ocean-like salinity, and pickled melon finish with grippy, fruit tannins and no oak.
