Neal Family Vineyards 2005 "One Lane Bridge" Cabernet Sauvignon
This cabernet sauvignon has expressive notes of spice and leather on the nose, with cassis, cherry, chocolate and black licorice. There are ripe flavours of brambly fruit, dried spice and thick, blocky tannins. This organic offering is very youthful at tasting despite being the vintage. I'd suggest buying a few, placing them in your cellar and start pulling corks from 2015 to 2020.
- Alberta: $100
