Day 84 Drink: Smith & Hook 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon
Smith & Hook is a California Central Coast label that is owned by Hahn Estates. The wine is named for the Smith Ranch, where horses once roamed, and the Hook Ranch, which used to be a cattle operation, located inland from Monterey.
Smith & Hook 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark purple wine that has an expanding fruity aroma. The wine offers up ripe dark berries to start and then ample tannins kick in to take over the rest of the wine. There is a hint of an attractive smokey note in the finish.
