90 Points: Left Bend 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah (Santa Clara County)
Deep blueberry and coffee notes meet with Christmas spices and gingerbread on the nose of this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Syrah, two grapes that really want to go together. It’s woody on the palate, with cedar spice and cigar-box touches giving depth to the blackberry-syrup flavor. Firm tannins keep it upright.
