2010 Josh Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon - North Coast, California

100% Cabernet Sauvignon, extended grape maceration, aged in American oak and then another 16 months in French oak. Sounds like a recipe for a perfect Cabernet Sauvignon and Josh Cellars came pretty close. Lots of dark fruit here like blackberry and with an 14% ABV this medium to full bodied wine is not to overpowering.
