Showket Vineyards-Cabernet Sauvignon-Oakville-Napa Valley-California-2003-$36.67-A nose of sweet cherry and spice, dark garnet in color.  A smooth, medium to full bodied Cab, hard to describe, not a typical Cab, with black cherry, sweet raisins,  herbs and veggies,  just different.  Let it decant a couple hours, consistent with last time tried.  The renowned Heidi Barrett was the winemaker.                     WE-94                    CR-90                  Good with ribs, chicken, pasta.
