Carmenet Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast Dynamite 1997

Member Review by EMark:

Inky dark in the glass--pretty much opaque. Smoky, oaky nose. Very nice on the tip of the tongue--slight hints of berry fruit, but also quite mellow. Initial sensation is very refreshing for a cab. Now I'm getting a bit of a cherry thing. Still lots of tannin on the back of the palate. Finish reprises the cherry sensation briefly, but then goes back to the tannin thing. This is a darned good wine. We are having grilled tri-tip steaks in a little bit, and I think this wine will do well. US$11.99 at Wine Club in 1999. I'm thinking this was one hell of a bargain.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
