Miner Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2000
Solid Wine for Bad Year

2000 was a mostly off year in my personal experience for California Cabernets - too many were "wet" wines in my opinion and were either too thin or too musty to keep.  This wine had the backbone of tannins and flavor to make it worthwhile at a discount,  Normal price was still too much.

I know 2000 is sort of an off vintage for California wines, but if this was an off vintage for this wine, I need to check out an 'on' vintage. Vanilla taste which tells me oak. Looked somewhat like a darker pinot instead of cab. Slightly fruit forward but well balanced and medium bodied. Also acid as well on uncorking. Not a heavy fruit style, but I loved the way it developed in the glass. Some wines taste almost different from sip to sip, gaining complexity and flavor. Those are some of my favorites and this was one. A good wine, nuanced, flavorful, with structure. Finish faded quickly, which was predicted once friend saw how fast the legs ran. One of the better cabs I've had.
