Lava Cap  Reserve  Cabernet Sauvignon Mike Taylor Very good  2001  $20.00
The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve shows a dark garnet core with a mahogany rim. Aromas of blackberry, black currant, anise, black olive and hints of bacon dance around the glass when nosed. In the mouth, the flavors follow through. The wine offers refreshing acidity and light smooth tannins. Flowing balance keeps the wine interesting as its stringy body parts with a delicate intensity. Agreeable and good overall, this Cabernet is ready to drink.
