2010 Recanati Cabernet Sauvignon: D/** David's effusive praise for Recanati inspired me to buy their entire selection and make my way through it over the next few weeks (The last 2 weeks I've posted TNs on the White SR and the very decent bargain basement Shiraz). After my very positive experience with the Shiraz, I had relatively high hopes for this wine despite its rock-bottom price, but alas, it was not to be. While I can't say it has any major flaw and it's certainly drinkable, there's simply nothing appealing in this wine. I suppose it's far better than some of the gunk other wineries produce in their entry-level labels (e.g., Barkan), but that's not saying much.

If you have a couple and have not tried it recently, open one up - for darn sakes! If you have had it recently, wait another year and see where it is. I have two left, or so, and I would be SHOCKED if this changes drastically now. I think it is at its peak - so enjoy it now for the next two or so years.
