This lusty Cabernet Sauvignon is meant for drinking now. What it lacks in polish it more than makes up for in rustic power, with ripely extracted flavors of blackberries, currants and cedar. Nice with anything calling for a dry, full-bodied red wine.
A rustic blend of Merlot, Zinfandel, Syrah, Grenache and Petite Sirah, this robust wine has lots of fruity flavor. Drink with Mexican food, burgers, goulash, meat loaf and similar simple fare.
The grapes are from hot areas, like Lodi and Amador, and although the official residual sugar reads dry, the wine tastes very sugary, with cherries. Go figure. From Sonoma Coast Winery.
