Jordan - Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
To date this is my absolute favorite cabernet. Blueberry notes shine through a nice overall mixture of fruit flavor (must be the petit verdot!) and just a perfect long finish that leaves you only wanting more. I know I'm giving it a higher score than most, but it's my score!
Caymus - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Very nice cabernet. Full of character on the nose and similar on the tongue. Consistent and strong but not overwhelming. Would accompany any meal nicely.
Chateau Montelena - Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
Big, bold and beautiful wine. Bursts with dark fruit early and finishes wonderfully with more subtle earthy flavors. An amazing bottle.
Roland La Garde - Tradition
Very nice, drinkable wine. Approachable (which may make sense). Dense aroma, hard to pick out too many distinct scents but blackberry/currant feels right. And chocolate...not sure I tasted it but the wine made we want some! Nice finish and easy on the palate. Will buy more if I see it...not sure it'll have staying power but enjoy it now!
