Red Wine

Vign. Kjellberg, Prop. Château Les Cabannes Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2005, A.C. Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Bordeaux, France: Vintages Wine Panel: Toronto-born Peter Kjellberg is the owner/winemaker of Château les Cabannes, an exciting, up-and-coming St-Émilion property. This is an exceptional value from the already-legendary 2005 Bordeaux vintage. With plenty of luscious fruit, coffee bean notes and ripe tannins. My note: A smooth, full-bodied, balanced red with good length on the finish. Pair with: griled or smoked meats. Drink: 2008-2011. 973727 XD 750 mL  $23.95 Score: 89/100.
