05 Long Meadow Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon ($55)  

We recently reviewed the LMR Sauvignon Blanc and found it to be excellent value. That trait has continued in this 05 Cabernet. The deep colored wine shows great black fruit on the nose while the taste gives us a hint of darjeeling tea. The tannins are still present but in a nice way, it still retains the balance required for a good cabernet. I suspect this will last a few more years and we will enjoy drinking it a t that time. All in all a good Cabernet.
