1991 Winterbrook Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley ($9)

WINE OF THE WEEK

March 01, 1995|By Michael Dresser

This brash young cabernet is a bit raw and unpolished, but it's a lot of fun in its bumptious way. It's not very complex and it needs some time in the glass to tone down, but it has a kind of in-your-face swagger that's fun, though hardly classic. (A wine for Deion Sanders fans?) What makes it work is the flavor -- lots of blackcurrant and cedar. Give it two or three years and it could acquire class.
