Tasting Notes – F. Stephen Millier Black Label

Name: Black Label
Producer: F. Stephen Millier
Region: California
Grape Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage2014
Overall Rating:  ☆☆
Pairing:  I went with the classic pairing of a burger and and a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon.  The burger was from Bareburger and the wine is from one of the Naked Wines producers.  It was a nice Cab Sauv – medium bodied, a bit acidic, and some tannins, which stood up to the burger, but my mistake was choosing blue cheese on the burger, which wasn’t an ideal match with the sour cherry flavor.
