Santa Rita Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

This is a fairly typical cabernet in this price range. It has the cabernet power - so it would stand up to a steak - and it tastes like a cab (which is good, given that it is one), but there isn't much fruit or subtlety. For me this wine has a bit of an unpleasant edge, but I happen to be particularly sensitive to a kind of harsh flavour that is present in some cabs, and it is hard for me to tell whether this is a flavour that most people would notice. I had this at a BBQ and the general consensus was that it was fine, but nothing special.
