Segal's 2011 Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, $18.99-$20.99, 89 points, had a bright ruby appearance with two thin rings around the glass rim: an orange purple transitional ring and a customary clear one at the glass wall.
Earthy perfume, candied red cherry, and blueberry on the nose were very good.
The medium-plus body with fair to good acidity and mild-plus tannin (textually a bit rough) carried the aroma onto the palate perfectly, but black currant and pomegranate flavors arrived late palate and trailed deep into the fair finish of gentle spice notes and a hint of the 13.5% alcohol.
