Tasting Notes: Very Nice California Cabernet Sauvignon. The appearence was garnet/ruby and concentrated. The nose had aromas of dark berries, vanilla, pepper, and plum. The berries continued onto the silky smooth palate with tight tannins and decent acid. The finish was long with spice. This is a full bodied wine.
Ravenswood is world renowned and a quality producer. The Vintners Blend Cab Sauv. is the entry level of a deep roster and does not disappoint. One surprise was the alcohol level of 13.5%. Considering the full body and typically high levels in American Cab Sauvs; this was an interesting note. Great food wine and does well on its own. HC
