Snap Dragon Winery 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon - 85pts

Snap Dragon Winery 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma Valley) California - USA

Availability: Widely available at private and BCLDB stores
Cost: $12-16
Alcohol: 13.5%
Date Tasted: November 12th, 2011

Tasting Notes: If you like big California Cabs with loads of ripe, dark fruit aromas and flavours with a little residual sugar left in the balance to offset the tannins and acid, than you'll be wise to add this well-priced wine to your rotation. If you're looking for a Cabernet Sauvignon that speaks to its origins and sips the sweet nectar of fine French oak, then you'll want to pass. More character than your standard Yellowtail-inspired fruity Cab Sauv with a quaffable nose of cassis puree and violets. Drink now-2013.
