Wattle Creek, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2005

The Wattle Creek is a pretty decent 2005 Cab with well-rounded flavors and aromas typical of a California cab. This one is from the Alexander Valley, which is my favorite region in Sonoma county. It has complex tastes with an oaky finish and is on the mild side in terms of intensity so it's better suited for lighter foods such as pasta, salads and appetizers. Might go well with dark chocolate too, though I haven't tried that with this one yet. This bottle was a gift from friends who know their wine -- and my preferences! :-) Thanks!
