A fantastic Cabernet Sauvignon

We grabbed a bite at Duke's off Lake Union tonight. I had a wonderful glass of wine that was organic. It was a 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon from Bonterra. Fabulous! Wonderful nose, nice deep color, good legs, fruit forward, very light on the tannins, little bit of spice as the secondary flavor, nice rich full body with a lovely finish. The nose smelled of black cherry, cassis and black raspberry, and touches of vanilla, clove, and cocoa. The palate tastes of cherry, dried cherry, raspberry, cranberry, redcurrant, and a warm touch of strawberry. Bought three bottles of the wine at a store not far from the restaurant and was pleasantly suprised to see it was on sale for just over $12 a bottle, normally about $15. I am seriously gonna price this stuff out and see about buying a case of it it was that good! I haven't had a glass of wine this good in awhile!
