Quick Review: Chateau Lafayette Reneau

NY, Finger Lakes, Chateau Lafayette Reneau, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2005
++ // Fruity // Cherry, Leather // Cherry, Chocolate, Pepper // Medium

Most Cabernet Sauvignons are fruity wines, with dark red fruit flavors. They also have a tendency to pick up subtle wood and earthy notes from their time in oak barrels. They are also often "heavy" bodied, although this one was less so, probably due to its origins in the cooler climate of the Finger Lakes.
