Mantra, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007

This Alexander Valley Cab is excellent! It's very characteristic of the region, with bouquet and taste of California's big reds. It's not for the faint of heart though, as it is full of tannins and high in alcohol --  a whooping 14.7%! In fact, the strong bite and the big alcohol are two of the things it could improve a little. This wine will be marvelous in a couple of years. But nonetheless I thoroughly enjoyed it now. For about $20, I will buy more and let it mellow in my cellar.
