One Response to “California Cabernet Sauvignon (2/09)”

  1. I agree. My wife and I went to a wine tasting event this past weekend and although I am a um er beer connoisseur, I thoroughly enjoyed the wines that were being presented. What was nice was that each winery brought anywhere from a half dozen to sometimes 20 different wines and I could drink the sweeter wines while my wife enjoyed the dry wines.
