External Reviews for Fetzer Cabernet Sauvignon Premier
Smooth-textured currant, cranberry, cedar and spice notes are easy-drinking, ending with a tobacco edge. Drink now.
Dark garnet in color, with a rich nose of blackberry, cassis, spice and vanilla. Flavors of ripe blackberry, chocolate, and cinnamon, are enhanced with notes of soft vanilla. Tannins are firm in this medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, with pleasant toastiness emerging on the finish.
This wine has excellent, body, structure and noise. Amazing quality
Quite firm, with toasty oak framing black currant and herbal notes. Drink now through 2005.
Light-bodied, with a pleasant tanginess. Wild berry and cedar flavors mingle well. Drink now.

Therersquo;s a refreshing tang to the berry and herbal flavors, with pleasant cola and spice notes and smooth tannins. Drink now.
