Bridlewood Paso Robles 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, $9.90-$15.99, 86 points, appeared opaque at the core trending black currant purple/red to the clear glass rim.
Bright black and blue fruit on the nose was tempered with hints of violets and cedar.
Medium-plus body carried good acidity and mild-plus tannin.
Vanilla flavors were maybe a bit too prominent for me, but licorice, blackberry, and tobacco notes were juicy and easy drinking.
Finished fair with a trailing palate, spice notes, and subtle hints of the 13.5% alcohol.
