Here’s good news for fans of Californian reds. Firestone’s blockbuster Cabernet is on sale till the end of the month. Almost port-like in intensity this wine delivers an appealing hit of warmth and spice. I seldom bother with decanting, but tossing this wine in and out of any container will add drinkability and charm to the heft.
