Raimat Cabernet Sauvignon, 1999

The 1999 Spanish Raimat Cabernet Sauvignon hails from Cataluna. It is blended with a tiny bit of Merlot. This stuff is great: aromas of plum and tobacco on the nose, with a very dense and opulent mouthfeel. Serious complexity at this value, and great structure. Rustic, with black fruits and chocolate on the palate, some earthy character, and moderate oak. Medium finish. $15. Enjoy with hard cheeses or chocolate-based desserts.
