2012 Dona Del Sol, Cabernet Sauvignon, CA 3/$10

Cabernet Sauvignon
Product of California
Oliver’s Market 3/$10

Bouquet is light fruit, hint of blueberry, mild, not big. First taste is surprisingly smooth, no oak, does not have typical cab qualities of bigger, bolder richness. It could masquerade for an Itallian red table wine. It’s a young tasting, very drinkable lighter red that with some age could be interesting. I’m tempted to buy a case and put it in the cellar – but alas for now it will be braising our short ribs for next 3-4 hrs at 350. We’ll save some for a couple glasses with dinner.

Very guest worthy definitely buy again!
