Casa Lapostolle Cuvee Alexandre 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon

Price: around $27

Color: Deep red purplish

Nose: Cassis, mint, and blackberries

Taste: Full bodied and rich.  Astringent tannins that over the course of devouring this bottle evaporated.  Notes of berries with a long finish.  Very tasty.

Summary: I think this wine will store very nicely for a couple of years. Some of the tannins which at first seemed strong will no doubt be aged out of the picture in a year or two.  This is Cabernet is balanced, full bodied, complex, and has good cellaring potential.
