Vigilance Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
The name is overwrought in the best CA fashion, but this young red is a very nice wine. Aged in oak for eighteen months, it's nicely balanced with black cherry and red currant elements, some vanilla, and some coffee. I would think it will age nicely in the bottle. The price of $12.99 is certainly in its favor. More and more I have the feeling that either the PSLB deliberately lures you with out of the way specials only to then soak you on their standard items, or that they just don't know what they're doing. Either way, if you're willing to put in the time, it's great fun to try to stay ahead of the game with them.
