2004 Estancia Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles Keyes Canyon Ranches
We've had Estancia's Pinot Noir and it wasn't bad – this one is about $13 at the local grocery store but they had a buy one, get one for 10 cents deal so I grabbed two for $13.10.
A fairly weak nose – I don't get much of anything really – other than a hint of earth.
The palate brings a bit of smokey oak, cherry, a touch of sweetness, and even a bit of cola, The tannins struck as mild but they come through as it lingers on the palate.
Strawberries come through on the finish.
For $13 – no. For $6.65 – absolutely. Not a bad bottle and perfectly good for under $10.
