I really like this. I had this vintage about a year ago and it was flabby, fruity nothingness. But somehow it's totally transformed. Dark, jammy fruit on the nose. On the palate, pleasant and surprising acidity, especially for a cab. Well integrated oak. Oily eucalyptus. Dry, popping chalky character in whirlwind with black raspberry and dark strawberry preserves. Balanced spice in mid palate. Smooth tannins. A wine with a fairly complete vision. Elegant but so much presence.

Easy drinking. Smooth finish. Light flavors, good for a new cab drinker.

Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity on the nose with blueberries, vanilla, wood, bonfire smoke, cherries, red candy, light earth, cloves, chocolates, spices, coffee, pencil lead and black pepper.

Full-bodied, smooth and bold, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with black currants, black plums, sour cherries, raspberries, vanilla, oak, coffee, spices, cloves, earth, leather, chocolates, burned wood and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This Californian Cabernet from the North Coast is drinking nicely now, but would be better in a few years. Not fully balanced yet, with mild complexity and a nice soft, buttery mouthfeel.

Needs an hour to open up. Good for parties, good by itself and better with food.
I paired it with barbecue steak.

Aged in French oak barrels.

14.1% alcohol by volume.



$18.

Really, really good. Very smooth. Like wine candy, but not super sweet. Fantastic fruity notes.

Light ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Strong nose (and a little tight) of vanilla, licorice, bell pepper, smoke, blackberries, cherries, vegetables, earth, tar, forest floor, peppercorn, oak, licorice, spices and cola.

Medium bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, peppercorn, leather, smoke, chocolates, green herbs and spices.

Medium plus on the finish with green tannins and peppercorn.

An above average Cabernet Sauvignon from the North Coast of California. Smooth and complex, but still young and unbalanced.

A little harsh right out of the bottle, and better after an hour in a decanter.

Needs 3 to 5 years in the bottle to mature.
