Sbragia 2001 Rancho Del Oso Cabernet Sauvignon (Howell Mountain)

Beringer's longtime executive winemaker Ed Sbragia finally has own brand, and this is his first, eagerly anticipated Cabernet. Like Beringer's Private Reserve, it's a gigantic wine. Concentrated and intense in currant, cherries and cocoa, solidly oaked, and those Howell Mountain tannins are sweet and ripe. Delicious now. Soft, so it's hard to predict how long it will age. Through 2010?
