Smith-Madrone 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon (Spring Mountain District)

A tough wine to like right now. It's tightly wound and hard in tannins and bone dry, which is the winery's house style. These are grapes that were picked early, before they shriveled. The flavors veer between blackberries and currants to anise and pepper. The gamble is in the cellar. Try after 2013.
