(Napa, Monterey & Central Valley)
First of all, this was hard to pass up on a $10 sale. I figured if it wasn’t to my liking, I could always use it in a marinade. After the first sip, let’s just say there wasn’t any left for a marinade. On the nose, this wine displayed black cherries, vanilla, white pepper and subtle oak.
With a full body, flavors of plums, currants along with hints of toffee and spice brought together an enjoyable, balanced blend.
This Cabernet is a delicious, velvety wine with rich tannins and a long, smooth finish. The complexity amazed me for this price point! From the winemakers info., this vintage had a blend using 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and the remaining fruit undisclosed.
If you want a reasonable red to go with your next steak, burger or even pizza, this should be one you consider. Originally, I found this at World Market.
