Bridlewood Cabernet Sauvignon

Blackberry, plum, and graphite roil up on the nose. Tart, barely ripe plum and fresh blackberry lead on the palate. Graphite, cranberry, and tar join on the mid-palate. Tannins are angular, the fruit flavors a little disjointed. Drink with a steak sandwich. Recommended. 86 points. DBH
