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 purple in color, with a rich nose of blackberry, spice and vanilla aromas. On the palate, the wine offers ripe blackberry, chocolate, and focused spices, enhanced with gentle vanilla flavors. 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.
