Waterstone Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2006
This continues to be one the best under-$25 Cabs on the market. There is impeccable balance here between ripe, plush opulence and muscular underlying structure. This is another legend-in-the-making wine at this price. Aromas of cedary oak, currants, black cherries and ripe plums are rich and concentrated on the palate. The firm tannins underlying the wine's core provide balance, leading to a long, lingering finish. 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc. Aged 22 months in French oak (80% new).
