Wente Southern Hills Livermore Valley 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, $11.89-$16.99, 87 points, poured ruby trending maroon with a thin clear rim.
The tame grapey nose with a hint of red cherry was just okay for me.
Medium-bodied with good acidity and appropriately supportive tannin were noteably complimented by flavors of easy drinking red fruits and a hint of plum.
Finished on a well integrated 13.5% alcohol, savory notes, a touch of oak, mushrooms, and mild spices.
Wente Southern Hills Livermore Valley 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon did pair well with my buttered toast and bacon sandwich.
