Here's one of the most serious bids in the Sierras for a Cabernet that rivals coastal versions. It comes close. Pretty flavors of currants and blackberries, a nice overlay of fancy oak and soft, intricate tannins are a pleasure in the mouth. It needs more depth and finesse, but this is a wine to watch.
