2006 Guenoc Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon: Tasty, and well-priced

march 13, 2010: we had this with chicago-style seasoned grilled steak, pureed roasted butternut squash (this is victoria's favorite butternut squash recipe), and steamed broccoli. greg said this wine had a somewhat sweet nose with a little raisin, but the texture was smooth. the flavor was slightly blackberry. victoria said the nose was blackberry and caramel. the texture was smooth with minor tannins. she said it was fruitier than other cabernet sauvignon we've had lately (those have been more earthy.) this is a good value wine. 14.5 percent alcohol. purchased at big red liquors for under $15.
