We had a little celebration with our nephew last night and had rack of lamg. To me lamb demands Cabernet Sauvignon, and, since celebration was the name of the evening, I pulled this out of the cellar. Very "mature" nose--hints of oak, but tame, some herbiness. Very nice mouth feel. Thankfully, not a lot of fruit. Good body, Very tame tannin. Very nice finish. US$19.99 at Wine Club in Santa Ana in 1999. Oh, for the good old days when wine was so much more affordable.

Trim, with good depth to the leathery cherry and cranberry flavors, with a firm herbal thread. Finishes with crisp tannins... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1996 Clos du Val Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
