Good but without distinction.

Excellent cab, but tiresome in its presentation. Too much vanilla and not much nuance. I compared it to Pine Ridge Cab2009. They tasted identical and hence the problem. Either I have tired of Cabs or Cabs have become as unoriginal as Cali Chardonnays.

So I conducted a tasting competition between this wine and the Columbia Crest 2008 Reserve Cab. Both are excellent cabs, but I found their similarities to be somewhat disconcerting. Both were heavy with vanilla. My spouse tasted this blindly and she said, Yes, a California cab without much enthusiasm. Which cab was better? For me it was a depressing tie!! Could it be that California and even Washington Cab are going the way of the now unoriginal Cali Chardonnays?

FOR THE PRICE, a fun yet serious Cab with some distinction and yet limited by its breeding.

Pelissero Barbera d'Alba Piani 2009
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $26.99
On tasting a second bottle I have upgraded my opinion. It we also my error in the original review to contrast this Barbera d'Alba with a Barbera d'Asti.

Altesino Rosso Toscana 2010
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $19.99
Smooth and seductive. Can be drunk without food for its own sake which is unusual for many Italian wines.
