Brander 2009 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Santa Ynez Valley)

Ripe fruit combines with fine tannins to make for a Cabernet that's easy to drink, yet good enough for an expensive cut of steak. The black cherry and raspberry flavors have a brambly edge, almost like a Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Don't look for Napa smoothness and opulence; instead, let the rustic nature of this wine charm you.
