2006 Bennett Lane Maximus
This full bodied blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and syrah is very well-balanced. It lacks the complexity of Napa’s very best, but is delightful for its price point. It is also quite food-friendly, in part because its alcohol, at 14.5%, is a bit below the trend for wines huge in every way.
