Karl Lawrence Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 Wine Review (NW)
Notes of raspberry, currant, and cinnamon on the nose
Full bodied and firmly textured on the palate
Currant and dark chocolate on a medium length, firm finish
This Cab has a dark fruit and chocolate profile, but it's firm and a bit austere. Some time in the cellar might develop this with smoother texture and rounded edges, but that remains to be seen. At $60, it's not a bargain. If you have a bottle of this, fire up the grill and give this wine plenty of air while wait for your steak to be done. For my money, I'll be raising a glass of something else.
