2005 Lapis Luna Shoup Vineyard Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon: Very good

feb. 12, 2011: we finished off the evening drinking the rest of this californian from winetree. this shoup vineyard cab is actually a pretty star wine for less than $20. greg said it smelled like berries. "it's not a strong, masculine cab, but it's smooth, fruity, with good tannins." i thought the nose was leathery, with some dark berries. it tasted like blackberries. it was a rich wine, soft, smooth and a very worthwhile try. it also had quite a bit of sediment (that you can see in the photo.) 13.9 percent alcohol. $16.99 with 10-percent discount.
