Poverty Hill Cabernet Sauvignon

I found this 2005 Poverty Hill Cabernet Sauvignon in a friend's fridge, still in the tropics. I had never heard of it. When I looked this up on the website, it was listed as one of the 10 most promising new wineries. This made me curious.

The move away from alcoholic wines is currently in the joint lead in my poll of desirable trends. Well, this winery has not heard of it. The wine has nice underlying fruit, but its taste is very alcoholic and hot. I had trouble drinking a second glass (which is unusual for me). Unfortunately Cabernet specific characteristics are getting lost behind this alcoholic front.
