Chalone Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Monterey County 2004
Our Cabernet Sauvignon opens with dark fruit aromas, cassis, fragrant oak and a touch of black licorice. On the entry, the full-bodied fruit glides across the palate, layering rich blackberry and red stone fruit stitched with vanilla, oak and spice.
The flavors linger through the finish, where they are met by fleshy tannins and good acidity. The rich body and well-balanced flavors of this wine pair nicely with dishes featuring good acidity, such as pasta tossed with roasted tomatoes, capers and olives.
