Wonderfully balanced and structured, a nice soft oak with undertones of mint and herbs. Nice cassis and hints of black olive in the mouth and nose also.

Very silky with nice jammy fruit and a bit of smoke. Great nose, but finish a bit short.

You could open this up right now without batting an eye. It started with cedar and blackberry on the nose. It's medium bodied, slightly alcoholic tasting, with straightforward blackberry flavors and some earthiness. The finish is a bit clipped -- starts strong with fruit, but quickly tapers off into a mild tannin. It's not nearly as complex as its more expensive cousins, but it's not built to be. It's a pleasant enough cabernet, especially with food (and it's much better with chocolate...). http://www.thenakedvine.net/2009/08/lake-county-california.html

With generous flavors of black currants, cherry and cassis the wine has a rich texture and enough tannins to promise a long life.

Wine Tasting NotesThis medium bodied wine has fruit characters focusing on black currants and cherry with hints of smokey oak and vanilla in the finish.
