2007 Once Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 'The Table'
WINE OF THE WEEK: 2007 Once Wines Cabernet Sauvignon "the Table." Click here for details. (Kirk McKoy / Los Angeles Times)
Young, but accessible, it's velvety and bright, the fruit tightly woven into the structure. Barely kissed with oak, it is a blend of Cabernet with 18% Cab Franc and a wee bit of Petit Verdot (barely 4%).
All this, and it's just $28? I'd say it's a gift.
Enjoy a bottle with steak frites, a standing rib roast or a nice stew.
