Tried the 2008 Manifesto Cabernet Sauvignon, North Coast tonight and I can't say that I'm very impressed. The nose seems green and unripe with sickly sweet cherry notes and some odd wintergreen aromas. The palate comes across as being quite manipulated with sweet/tart fruit and unbalanced acidity. No tannins or finish of note. Didn't do any favors for our pasta dinner.
