The 2010 James Mitchell Cabernet Sauvignon is Estate Grown in Lodi, California. It had 13.8% alcohol, low for Lodi, and was produced and bottled at the winery in Acampo, CA.


Black Cherry and a hint of oak; full bodied with a long aftertaste. Great with red meat, cheese or pasta. It tannic acid is refined and smooth making it easy to drink.

The wine cost under $30, and at eight year old, it still has many years left in it; I’d say at least a decade. It scored 17 points on the Dionysian scale of 20.  In Vino Veritas.
