Stony Ridge Winery  Juan's Blend  Cabernet Sauvignon Mike Taylor Very good  2002  $17.00
A distinguished example of a good Livermore Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is the Stony Ridge 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon. It looks tasty from the first pour. Showing a deep ruby red core, the wine fades to a light ruby rim. A deep intense nose provides aromas of black currant, beetroot, black cherry and black olives that present themselves with complexity. In the mouth the flavors follow the nose. Along with refreshing acidity, dusty powdery tannins and generous alcohol, the wine sports an ample body. A pleasing dry long finish wraps up this nicely balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. With youthful, good and agreeable complexity, this wine drinks well now and should provide plenty of enjoyable drinking time ahead.
