What We’re Drinking – Murrieta’s Well Small Lot Cabernet Sauvigonin 2013

Cassis and vanilla come through on the nose. The palate shows more complexity, leading with black currant and mulberry, adding tart red fruits on the mid-palate. Unsweetened chocolate, espresso, and some pencil lead dance in and out among the fruit flavors. Drink with lamb chops. Highly Recommended. 90 points. DBH
