I'm a huge Zinfandel lover, but earlier this Summer, I decided to give another bold red a chance, and so I've been drinking — and enjoying — a lot of Cabernet Sauvignon. My latest favorite is Huge Bear's 2006 Cab Sav ($55). Although it's pricey, this luscious intense wine is worth the splurge. The grapes are grown in Sonoma and the wine ages for 18 months in new French Oak barrels resulting in a deep purple liquid that's full-bodied with a dark fruit aroma. It's a sophisticated strong wine with a smoky, long finish. I paired it with bacon and clam pizza, but it would work wonderfully with grilled steaks or dark chocolate. Have you tried Huge Bear's wine?
