2008 Cade Cabernet Sauvignon

A CaliCultCab, and if that's your bag, at just fifty bucks this is Highly Recommended. If it's not, then you're buying the wrong bottle. Drink with people who don't know you bought it at Costco. DH

Palate Press Wine of the Week: 2007 Cornerstone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon

Improving with every sip, gaining structure and depth with every extra minute of air, this is a beautiful baby that will, with time, mature into a gorgeous adult. Dark fruit (blackcurrant and mulberry) has a background of tobacco leaf and the tiniest touch of cayenne. Rich very dark chocolate and espresso pop on the mid-palate. Tannins are very sweet and dusty. Even with all the rich sweetness, it also has good acids and an underlying minerality, offering a decade or more in the cellar, maturing and offering layers of primary and secondary flavors in the future. Drink with a good steak and a better friend. Very highly recommended.
