Karl Lawrence Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

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.
