The Show 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon (California)
Not my first experience with this wine and certainly not to be my last. On an evening where 9 wines were poured between 12 people (two bottles were not counted as they were absolutely horrible - no names mentioned here) this wine was the only one I am choosing to mention as the others will either or have either been written about on my main website (ontariowinereview.com). The nose has changed on this once juicy and fruit forward wine, aromas are now woodsier with black cherry and cassis notes. The flavours are more of the dried variety with lots of spicy wood backing - it's getting a little long in the tooth but does show a nice blackberry and cedar finish that still very pleasant.
