Thomas Halby Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Nose of black cherry and licorice

Cherry cola on the palate

Smooth finish of plum and red berries

This wine is smooth and soft for a Cabernet Sauvignon. What I mean by soft is the lack of any herbal nuances to compliment the rich fruit. The black cherry aromas are inviting, but there aren't a lot of other layers to carry it through.

Still, it tastes good and is appealing for the smooth texture. Just understand that this is a softer style of Cab. I paid $15 and have seen it priced from $14 to $19. Raise a glass!
