Eberle Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles, 1997
The wine is very dark in color and is intensely extracted. The nose is a concentrate of black cherries, bell pepper and cassis. At first taste it appears young, with a little glass time it really sang. Big and bold with mouth-coating black fruit, muscular backbone and great French and American oak on the extremely long finish. The Best Eberle Cabernet Sauvignon since the epic 91′, maybe even better. Stock up on this one. $25.
