Wente-Charles Wetmore-Livermore Valley 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, $24.99-$29.99, 89+ points, poured a deep ruby trending pomegranate to black currant purple red with a broad clear wine ring.
Smells of black currant, roses, sea breezes, and licorice were good.
Near full-bodied with good acidity and comfortable, but sufficiently supportive tannin managed flavors reflective of the aromas with luscious black fruits and a hint of red cherry.
Finished long on the trailing palate, a well integrated 13.5% alcohol, easy spice notes, and just a touch of lingering spearmint.
