Geyser Peak Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2006, Alexander Valley, CA - $11

I purchased this wine for $11/bottle at Costco. Wine Enthusiast rated it 90 points, past vintages have been rated in the high 80s and low 90s.

Aroma - black fruit, spicy, a little hot (at 13.5% alcohol, this is a little surprising)
Tate - black fruit, dark cocoa, strong tannins, long finish kind of medium-bodied for a Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a very simple, straightforward wine. It's fine for the price. I like a little more complexity and interest in my wines, but this is absolutely drinkable and could even be enjoyable if you want a simple, easy-drinking wine.
