Benziger Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 Wine Review (NW)
Chocolate and mixed berries on the nose with a herbal undertone
Full bodied on the palate
Plush finish with dark berries and licorice
I've been impressed with the relative value in Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County lately. This basic level wine from Benziger is really quite nice, especially for $18 or so. It's rich but not sappy and has well integrated layer. I'm stocking up. So raise a glass!
