Waterstone Napa Valley 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, $16.99-$22.99, 92 points, has a Bordeaux red color, a somewhat cloudy ruby-red with a broad transparent rim.
The lovely toasty aroma of spiced cherry and plum are accented by floral notes.
The medium plus body carries good acidity, mildly persistent tannin, and juicy blackberry, plum, cherry, earth, and licorice.
Finishes long on the trailing palate, menthol, spice, and some heat (14.5% alcohol).
If you like Cabernet Sauvignon wines, at $16.99 you'll have a hard time beating this one for value.
