Kirkland Ranch, Carbernet Sauvignon, 2002

This 2002 Cab from Napa Valley is very interesting. It definitely does not overpower the palate. It's almost with no strong distinctive flavors and nonetheless it's still quite pleasant. Its slightly old age did it some good and it seems the flavors settled among themselves. Not too sweet and not too tannic, this is a great wine to go with foods with delicate sauces and little spices, since it won't get in the way of the appreciation. Or a nice rib eye, which was the case today. This bottle was a present from good friends, aged at their cellar. I would definitely repeat, if only I could find more. Maybe I need to pay Kirkland Ranch a visit, in Napa.
