Sonoma Mountain, California
WB Rating: 89

Alcohol by volume: 14.5%
Price at time of purchase: $30.00 (Locals Tasting Room, Geyserville)
Type: Cabernet / Bordeaux
Principal varietal(s): Cabernet Sauvignon

Youthful, deep, opaque red-purple color. Bordeaux-like nose with notes of cassis, blackberry, violets, and even a bit of the famous lead pencil. Rich and full in the mouth and still youthfully structured, totally drinkable at age 5 but with the balance to go another decade or more. Good length and sense of harmony. - HK 2010-08-23
