Buena Vista Carneros Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 (NW)

Buena Vista Carneros Cabernet Sauvignon 2001:

Big, fruity nose
Jammy, with strawberry and raspberry notes
Oak layer
Moderate tannins
Shorter finish, but nice

I put this in a wine flight of domestic Cabernet Sauvignon. It had the most "jammy" characteristics in the flight and a pretty good overall appeal.

Buena Vista is a very nice winery to visit near Sonoma and it has a friendly tasting room. I was there several years ago, but haven't sampled any of their wines since then. I was glad to find the Cab for $14 and would look for it again as it's a good representation of California Cabernet Sauvignon. Raise a glass!
