2006 Rutherford Grove Pestoni Family Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

With neighbors like Opus One and Rubicon, this was bound to be a keeper. Nose of cedar, anise, tobacco, and fresh leather. Flavors of blueberries, cassis, and chocolate with soft, well-integrated tannins. Velvety finish. Nice now, but will be even better by 2013. (NOTE: This is not the Howell Mountain Cab.) Cries out for a grilled hanger steak with its rich, beefy flavor. Highly recommended. GT
