Artesa Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 review by (PB)

This sale Cab is 56% Napa grapes and 44% Sonoma grapes and it is a value wine at the price of $16 down from $30. It is a nice dark garnet hue with a lovely bouquet of sweet dark cherry and licorice with hints of pipe tobacco.

Palate--Nice full flavored with berries and some spice, cedar notes finishing with a touch of fruity chocolate. A nice example of the grape.

This is what you might expect for a $30 Cab so at $16 grab more and raise a glass!
