Fusee Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 (NW)

Fusee Cabernet Sauvignon 2003:

Cinnamon on the nose
Berries and chocolate palate
Moderate tannins

A pleasant surprise! I bought a case of "bargain" mix-and-match wines to see if we could uncover any hidden jems. I sent half to PB and kept half to try myself. This wine happened to be opened when we were together and it was a crowd pleaser. It was very approachable, had some nice layers, and disappeared very quickly into everyone's glasses. After closer inspection of the label, which has some whimsical commentary on futuristic space travel, we discovered that this wine is a project of the Sebastiani family. That explains the quality in the bottle! The wine is a true bargain, and would be fun with a big group or in a party setting. Raise a glass!

P.S. It was only FOUR DOLLARS!

Caution: Only use if you have an expensive palate and a kmart budget. This actually may be my fav cab.
