2004 Gallo Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Reserve
Sonoma County, California
WB Rating: 84

Alcohol by volume: 13.8%
Price at time of purchase: $9.99 (Raley's)
Type: Cabernet / Bordeaux
Principal varietal(s): Cabernet

Core of ripe, smoky dark currant fruit. Nuances of tobacco and black olives. Some tannic structure to give it grip. Surprisingly broad range of flavors. Not especially long, but extremely respectable given the price. Little of the green or overly sweet or off-varietal character that one would expect to find in a Cabernet at this price point. - HK 2007-11-24
