Caliterra Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

The Caliterra Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 is perfectly agreeable from the moment you crack open its screwcap. By itself, it has just a tinge of that old Chilean green pepper component in the tannins, but with food (say, for example, grilled lamb) that becomes an asset. It has a nice deep blackberry nose, good color, black cherry on the palate and enough oomph to hold up to strong spices. This is a good, robust and relatively easy to drink wine, well worth the $10 price of admission.
