Happy Hour: 2007 Lander-Jenkins Cabernet Sauvignon

In general, during the warmer months, I prefer white wines, but ever since I attended a wine and chocolate pairing earlier this Summer, I've been prone to winding down with a chunk of chocolate and a glass of big, complex red wine.

My recent favorite? The ridiculously low-priced 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon from Lander-Jenkins ($14). I've gotten into the habit of pulling out the largest stemware I have, pouring myself a few ounces of this dark Cabernet, and watching Conan O'Brien's monologue before climbing into bed.

I love that it's full-bodied but not overly tannic. A swirl in the glass produces thick tears of liquid, indicating a high alcohol content, yet each sip is incredibly smooth. The wine's plummy, mellow flavor pairs perfectly with a piece (or two) of dark chocolate. Have you ever tried Lander-Jenkins Cabernet? What did you think of it?
