Sterling Albert Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Lake County 2006
I want to WEAR the color of this wine - and after a few glasses I probably could be wearing it! The nose is cherry apple pie with hints of cardamom and cedar. There are flavors of bright fruit and cedar that lead into a chokecherry finish. At $18/bottle, you've got to taste this beauty for yourself.Add winemaker's notes

The hot nose shows flavors of cigar tobacco and hints of blackberrys. The mouthfeel shows great potential. Like the nose, it is hot, and in addition is a bit too tight and tannic for me. So if heavy, bitter tannins are for you - this is a great wine. To be fair, I would like to try this wine with food, because it shows potential for some great pairings. Personally, for my pallet, if I am to drink this wine without food - I'll wait until 2010 when the wine matures a bit...
Wow. . . . this is not a wine for beginners but if you are new to the game, I would still invite you try this out. The color is gorgeous - a brilliant plummy purple. The nose is classic and really pretty! Look for the hints of dried tobacco leaves, licorice and cedar box. On your palate, bright plums dance wildly with a dusty dry finish! It is a bit young, so if you can, buy three or four bottles!! You have to be able to try this now and see how it changes after a few years of cellaring. What a great value at $18/bottle!
