Ahlgren 1997 Bates' Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon (Santa Cruz Mountains)

Cassis, menthol, black olive, and some alfalfa make for a complex bouquet. It's undoubtedly forward—red fruit, chocolate and vanilla on the palate—with a piercing quality that could subside with age. This wine has the stuff to please: it's round, mouthfilling and very correct.
