Michael-Scott Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2005 Reg. Price $29.99 Sale Price $22.99
There’s a new brand at Wells, Michael-Scott. And I’m not talking about the paper company. Rooted in Napa Valley, grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from vineyards between St. Helena and Calistoga. Showing a ruby/crimson color, the wine offers a bouquet of black cherry, blackberry, cassis, leather, spicy oak, and a touch of mineral. The palate is medium-full-bodied, elegant and complex offering blackberry, black cherry, oak spice, and earthy flavors. The tannins are well-integrated to allow the flavors to really shine through. Not flashy, but with excellent length on the finish, this offering is a very nice, elegant example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
