2003 Amethyst Cabernet Sauvignon

Lovely warm nose of chocolate, violets, and blueberries, along with a hint of saffron. A bit tight at first and a tad more floral than one might expect, but it unfolds to a seamless melding of soft tannins with more of that blueberry fruit laced with a bit of tobacco. Not an earth-shatterer and not a wine for long-term aging, but a very nice Cabernet nonetheless. Drink with a white pizza. Recommended.
