2002 Chateau Souverain, Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley

Dark. Very tight nose, with hints for cherry. Forward fruit of cherry and chassis, good acid, soft tannins, and a long fruity finish. This is surprisingly tight for a Chateau Souverain. It was very slow to open in the glass. It seems to need a few years to come around. I paid $16. My rating 85.
