2007 Arnold Palmer Cabernet Sauvignon: Masculine, earthy, serious

dec. 10, 2010: we paired this with grilled steaks. i was coming off a nap, and greg was coming home from work, so it was a good night. this north coast californian was recommended by tim at winetree. starting out sour, it needed to decant. after about 20 minutes, it had mellowed enough to be a welcome pour into our glasses. this is a masculine cab, meaning it's heavy, with an earthy feel and flavor that would cost more at any other vineyard. but this arnold palmer -- yes, it's named after the golfer -- is a good buy at around $14. winetree. 14.1 percent alcohol.
