Wine Tasting: Merryvale 2001 Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon

(Napa Valley)
2001 Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon
Rating: 8/10

Deep and immensely concentrated rich flavor, but too concentrated for my taste. Aeration brings out excellent black cherry and other fruit essences. Enjoyable but not easily accessible to this novice. I suspect in a few years this (and cabernets in general) will be more to my liking as my tastes mature.

$20 from Trader Joe's.
