Alexander Valley 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon

Alexander Valley Wetzel Family Estate
I've gotta give this one a strong 6.5/10. I've been on a streak of good cheap wines recently, and this one clocks in at only $14. Costco continues to impress me by carring good wines I've never heard of.

This Cabernet from the Wetzel family estate also contained small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Strong tannins and currant on the finish, a bit tart even. Black cherry dominates. Overall, rich and spicy.
