2012 Stephen Vincent Cabernet Sauvignon

November 13, 2014 - Norman Bentley

This is the report, as promised last week, regarding the red wine highlight at our a small gathering of college classmates in Lagrange, Georgia. Coincidently the hometown college, Lagrange College, was having their home-coming and alumni reunion, which added a festive atmosphere to our weekend. We indulged in large quantities of food and drink, most of which was of course, wine. Red wine was the majority selection at our dinner on Saturday night at the Mare Sol restaurant in downtown Lagrange. Mare Sol has an interesting, and varied menu, which was perfect for our large dinner group of thirteen. We chose the 2012 Stephen Vincent Cabernet Sauvignon to accompany our meal, and it was a hit.

The Vincent Cab is from the Central Coast, and offers a classy California Cab taste at a moderate price. The nose opens with a display of black cherry and other dark fruit aromas drifting up from the glass and translating into rich flavors of the cherry with notes of cassis and blackberry. The finish is clean with subtle tannins and a hint of vanilla. The alcohol content is 14.2%. Norm's score is 88.

Mare Sol has a wide selection on the menu ranging from burgers, to quesadillas, seafood, and pasta. The "Chardonnay Queen" and I shared a tasty selection of Tapas, which was a variety of flavors that matched up nicely with the Stephen Vincent Cabernet. Good food, good wine, and good friends made for a memorable evening! There is a link for Mare Sol at the bottom of this article.

Score: 88

Price: $12 - $16
