Thumbprint Cellars-Schneider Vineyard-Cabernet Sauvignon-Alexander Valley-California-2006-$17.96-A nose of dark spicy fruit, deep crimson in color.  Black currants, blueberry, dusty spice, good texture and mouth feel, a full bodied Cab that drinks like a $40-50 bottle.  I visited  their tasting room in Healdsburg a few years back , worth the trip.  I have tried and reviewed their Chard, Pinot, Cab and Red Blend over the last year, all were very good, all have this interesting label.               NR             CR-4-4.5            Good with steak, chicken, pasta.
