2006 Robert Young Winery "Red Winery Road" CABERNET SAUVIGNON (Alexander Valley, Cal.)
Soft-hued dark ruby. Rich, ripe cassis/blackberry fruit, accented with a modest amount of sweet vanillin from the French oak and the open Alexander Valley earthiness there in the background. Soft and mouthfilling, with dark-toned ripe red fruit and a mouth-coating sweet graphite component. Finishes dry and very minerally, still with some soft tannin. Would pair nicely with roast prime rib or an Argentine-style beef cutlet "Milanese." B+. I got this from WTSO.com for $30 several months ago.
