    (2004 Vintage) 6% Cabernet Sauvignon; 3% Zinfandel. From its candied, red-cherry aromas to its very simple, mildly fruity flavors, this clean but innocuous wine is very much the minimalist with respect to richness or real substance. While its tannins are minor, they are noticeable in light of the wine's fundamental shortage of real stuffing and strength.
