Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Frei Brothers Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.

Original tasting and review : This is Frei Brothers Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California, 2012, finished at 14.2% alcohol and first sampled 3 years from vintage date, in April, 2015.  I sampled the 2012 Frei Brothers Reserve Merlot a short time ago and liked it a great deal.

In the glass: Purple black magenta, opaque from an inch in.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows clean, fresh, purple berries.  From the aroma, seems like this will be bright, aromatic yet light.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact soft, rich, full of cinnamon and ripe blackberry.  Soft tannins that bring milk chocolate along to a languorous finish.

In summary: Overall, just touches four stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, and becomes a best value.
