2012 Belle Ambiance Cabernet Sauvignon, California

Belle Ambiance Cabernet SauvignonGil Lempert-Schwarz, the chairman of The Wine Institute of Las Vegas, recommended this Californian Cabernet Sauvignon produced by the Delicato Family Vineyards writing in the Las Vegas Review Journal this week.

He said: “This is a deep blackish-red color with an opaque purplish-red colored center going out into a violet-red rim definition and medium-high viscosity.

“On the nose: It exudes layers of ripe crushed black fruit with dominance by black currant, boysenberry, blueberry jam, then comes a touch of creme de cassis, vanillin from oak, earthy minerals and phenolics.

“On the palate: It immediately coats the palate with black fruit characteristics, followed by cherry and cassis juices, and then ripe, firm, yet silky tannin structure with some degree of alcohol as it comes out a little “hot.” It has an excellent midpalate with loads of fruit and crushed loganberry and finishes nicely with chunks of cherry liqueur and creme de cassis. It does need to open up for about half an hour or more before consumption to give it a chance to “burn” off some of the initial alcohol, but then it reveals nice concentration and excellent potential for this price category.”

Price: $6.99
