De Loach 1997 OFS Cabernet Sauvignon (Russian River Valley)

One of the few wines from this cooler Sonoma appellation in our tasting, and a nice one indeed. The aromas differ from the norm; there's spearmint, licorice gumdrops, herbs and tobacco. Nice and distinctive at all points: clean raspberry fruit, dusty tannins on the finish, and a peppery streak. A few years will bring it together even more.
