wine list wednesday

sorry for my little absence - the end of last week was a bit crazy what with last minute flowers needed for a wedding and the holiday. but im back with my second installment of wine list wednesday. 

this week its a red its much more refined and sophisticated that the one last week - the 2005 bottle of the St. Supery cabernet sauvignon.

i was expecting a big napa cab but is delicate and light. I let it breath for about 40mins. before tasting - pretty yummy. light with rich black fruit flavors. juicy at the front and good dryness at the end. i would even through the word velvety in there.  overall very well rounded. 

18$ at safeway (thought it was on sale. i think it usually retails for about 25$)

it would be nice with lamb or even a spicy pizza. 
i would get it again.
