Gallo of Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2005

Member Review by hordur:

I bought this one in Iceland for about $21 (yes wine is really pricey there) which is a medium price. I´ve had it several time before but not reviewed it. I found it to be a very well balanced wine and but as bold as I would have expected for a Californian cab. Although WS only gives it an 83 I really liked the very nice balance. I like oaky notes, which this wine was not strong in, but once in a while its good to just taste the nice flavor of the grape. I think WS was expecting a heavier wine. I have to admit though that it had a short ending on the palate. I think its well worth having with grilled duck breast, like I had it. I recommend you try it for yourself.
