Geerlings & Wade 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, California
This Cabernet has a youthful dark purple hue with aromas of ripe red berries, dried oregano, bell pepper with slight notes of lavender and cinnamon in the background. On the palate, this wine has a pleasant entry which continues all the way through to the finish. The acidity and tannin structure are both balanced yet low in intensity which beg for another sip.
This is the perfect Cabernet Sauvignon for everyday drinking. It fact, it’s so smooth you don’t even have to wait for dinner. It is a fruit-forward, smooth Cabernet which pairs well with savory dishes such as hearty beef stew and a rustic French bread or baked green bell peppers stuffed with garlic and herb lamb sausage and wild rice.
