2010 Kendall-Jackson Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner’s Reserve

The full-bodied 2010 Kendall-Jackson cabernet sauvignon tastes of black cherry, blackberry, and currant. Grippy tannins and a little acid give this wine a nice and lingering finish.

This wine pours out a dark inky color, exactly what you’d expect from a cabernet sauvignon. I didn’t think that this needed to decant for very long, but if you have the time, allowing it to breath for some time can open it up a little. Being an affordable but solid wine, I would drink this on a regular basis as well as pair it with all types of meat. It has the body to stand up to a heavy steak as well as the versatility to even complement juicy chicken.

2005 Rezonja Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a big, dry, and full-bodied cabernet sauvignon from Sonoma with aromas of earth and spice on the nose. On the first night, this wine tasted leatherly with earthy herbs after opening. There was not a lot of fruit coming through on the first night. The second night provided only a slightly smoother finish, still with lingering tannins, and a taste of dark chocolate and blackberry.

This wine is a full and dark ruby color. It needs at least an hour to open up. I recommend decanting and pairing with red meats.
