Francis Coppola's Ivory Label 2011 Cabenet Sauvignon, $13.99-$17.99, 89 points, poured an opaque ruby transitioning in layers of purple/red up to a thin orange/red ring at the still broad clear rim and lightly draped bowl.
Aromatic black currant, toasty fig, black olives, and a soft floral vibe were excellent.
Full-bodied (dry) with good acidity and soft supportive tannins managed to make herbal black currant and plum flavors taste quite good.
Finished with hints of red raspberry, pepper spice, and an appropriate 13.5% alcohol.
Paired fine with my spice-rubbed rare Angus T-bone steak and chips.
