Wine Tasting: Chateau Souverain 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon

Chateau Souverain
(Alexander Valley)
2001 Cabernet Sauvignon
Rating: 7/10

Strong but overly restrained delivery. Muted. Rich flavor is perhaps more chocolate than grape, but too brief. Finish is smooth and gradual. Subtle flavor can be easily overwhelmed by oak and other harsher tones with too much aeration. Seems to take too much care to enjoy and the payoff isn't quite rewarding enough.

$15 at Costco
