1997 Cypress Cabernet Sauvignon

1997 Cypress Cabernet Sauvignon

$13.77 (Purchased at VONS about 10 years ago)
Nose is distinctly tobacco. First taste is raisin, but still had some acidity, and was easily recognized as a cab. Raisin fades to cocoa (maybe blended with a little Merlot?) Nice finish with oak and tobacco. Great buy, long wait was worth it (but I am partial to aged Cabs). For wines under $15, 8/10. Over all, 7/10.
