DiGiorgio Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

I thought this wine was darn good.  It had a somewhat typical Coonawarra cabernet aroma of anise, chocolate and spices.  On the palate, the fruit was plummy, and almost rather opulent, with excellent length.  I drank this wine with pizza (albeit a very good one), and kept trying to think of reasons why I was overrating it (the wine, not the pizza).  In the end, I really couldn't find any.  Excellent drinking.  Here are some technical notes from the winery. 90 points (7.5/10).

Price: $28
Abv: 14.5%
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Yes
