Bridlewood Paso Robles 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

  1. This sounds shallow, I know, but I don't think the label lends much shelf-appeal to that wine.

    1. Vinogirl, sometimes I'll mention that a wine bottle will compliment a table setting, but I certainly didn't with the Bridlewood ;-)
