H and G Collector's Edition Oakville 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, $17.99-$19.99, 85 points, poured ruby red with a broad clear wine ring and a glass bowl of moderate sheeting.
The aromas began funky with a bit of tomato, but after breathing for thirty minutes started to settle down to a more acceptable dusty mulberry with a hint of coffee.
Unusually light (medium) body, for a Cab, with a soft underlayment of tannin carried rather thin flavors reflective of the aromas.
Finished fair on earthy spices, pomegranate, and a sweet spot 13.7% alcohol.
Paired okay with Debbie's beef stew.
I bought this Cabernet Sauvignon at the Whole Foods of Bedford.
