Flanagan The Beauty of Three Cabernet Sauvignon
Flanagan Winery
United States - California - Sonoma County

Beauty of Three, named for Eric Flanagan's three daughters.

The nose has beautiful floral notes of Cherry Blossom and Almond Blossom intertwined with more savory coffee notes. The palate has Red Currant, Black Plum, and an elegant cigar box note. The wine is very polished and tight. It drinks like a young Pauillac. This is a balanced wine with great purity. I encourage you to taste this blind with any California Cabernet or Left Bank Bordeaux near this price point.
