Hunt Cellars-Cab-Ovation-Cabernet Sauvignon-Reserve-Destiny Vineyards-Mt. Christo Block-Paso Robles-California-2001-$29.98-A nose of black cherry and spices, dark garnet in color. A smooth, full bodied Cab, with currants, wild cherries, vanilla and spice finish, there is some bottle variation where one bottle is more Bordeaux like and the next is bolder, this one was in the bold category, a solid Cab.                  NR                   CR-91                  Good with steak, chicken, pasta.
