My husband is a big fan of Cabernet Sauvignon, and I want to get him a special bottle for upcoming Valentine's Day. He likes a Cab with a full fruity character, but also with a very smooth finish (he doesn't like the tannic edge (bitterness) that some Cabs can tend to have).
As an example, he really enjoyed Opus One (can't remember the year...but I think it was 2001). But I would really like to let him try something new.
So any recommendations for California Cabs or French Bordeaux would be greatly appreciated! Looking to spend less than $200. Thanks!
