Lyeth rhymes with teeth, but Lyeth Cabernet Sauvignon wine has no bite.
That’s the slogan from Lyeth Estate and they’re right, this wine is very smooth and doesn’t have a bite at all.
Lyeth Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting
The nose was deep and somewhat earthy though not overpowering. I’d say that’s typical of a good Cabernet Sauvignon.
Excellent taste. Smooth, lightly complex and with layers of cherry, blueberry and cocoa as the tasting notes suggest. I’d also say a little jammy as well.
Tannins were definitely noted and the flavor of the wine lingered on the palette for some time, with a slight pucker.
I’d call the mouthfeel of the Lyeth Cabernet Sauvignon soft like cotton with a very slightly dry finish.
Overall, I think this is a great sipping wine and would go great with a cheese of medium body.
I also kept thinking how wonderful this wine would go with Prime Rib.
