Butter 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon

This rich and tasty California Cab was a thoughtful gift from our neighbors. This 2018 is the current vintage. Produced by JaM Cellars, it's very popular among Vivino users. Softly fruity with blackberry flavors morphing into more mature notes of raisins and prunes. The tannins are ripe and bring some darker hints of graphite, olive, and mushroom. It's a big wine - almost 15% alcohol - but smooth and balanced. At least some of the grapes appear to have come from Lodi, which is always a good sign for quality and affordability. $17 (California)
