Review and Rating: *** Steven Kent Winery Cabernet Sauvignon, 2005, Livermore Valley, CA

Steven Kent Winery cabernet sauvignon is made from two vineyardsin Livermore Valley, CA, by Steven Mirassou. You'll recognize thelast name from another popular California maker. The year 2005 was achallenging one in the fields around this area.

Let's see what thewine is like. The Steven Kent 2005 cabernet is light-to-medium red in the glass. Aromas are of bright, sweet black currants that show an alcohol tinge.

On the palate, the first sensation is in the mid-mouth, of plush,oaked fruit. This is complemented by a mellow, round acid that bringsthe fruit flavors to the sides of your mouth. Quite light tannins,with the fruit and slight acids bringing you into the next sip. Three stars out of five.
