Cracked open this ‘16 Cab Sauv from Benziger. Haven’t visited since 2012 but love the winery.

Right off the bat, acid and tannic, dark cherries. The color is dark garnet with strong legs but still seems young for the 2013 Vintage. Second round brings more scent and blackberries, currant, plum and spice. No earthiness. Like a Vanilla Cherry Cola! I wouldn't guess this to be a Cab but I'm really enjoying it!

Perfect blend of fruit/dry flavor, a little more on the fruitier side, still good

Oh my GOD. First Cab I try, and it is amazing. The mocha taste along with spicy = heaven. It's semi-high alcohol content (14%?) sort of scared me, I thought it might have a sour taste going down my throat but not the case, it's so smooth and just delicious. Now other cabs will have high expectations!
