Magito Wines
Highlands Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006
Sonoma County, California
$33 (approx.) Private stores

Magito Wines’ Cabernet blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot. This wine is pure California, with intense blackberry and cassis, vanilla spice and cherry cola. Well-structured, but still rich and chocolately, the tannins are firm but elegant.  I wish I could tell you where to get this wine – it is available in BC, but not at government stores.  Check your local private bottle shop, but try not to pay more than $35. 91 points – Excellent

*Magito Wines Zinfandel (not yet rated) is available at BC Liquor Stores and Everything Wine for $26.99
