McManis Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

A California Cabernet. A lovely middle palate delight of bold wine with blackberry and coffee. Plenty of body. Wonderfully tannic. I will definitely buy this one again. It has all the right characteristics for my tastes. Firm and full. A great buy at $11/ bottle. Tom: This is a great find. It is very rich in fruit flavor, dark fruits with hints of chocolate, without being a grapy fruit bomb. It tastes ever so slightly sweet to me, but it passed Melody’s strict tannic taste. To me this shows what quality is out there at just a little over $10. It also shows the value of a good wine shop; Melody found this  McManis Cabernet Sauvignon at A&L Wine Castle, a true wine shop in Ann Arbor. We wouldn’t have found this at our local grocery store, and I’m not sure what determines whether a wine like this appears at our Sam’s Club.
