I love it when somebody recommends a wine to me, especially when their recommendation is on point for my personal preferences. I’m happy to say that’s what happened with this budget Cab.
Notes: This purpley Cab had a bouquet including oak, barnyard, mint, vanilla and dark berries. It was medium-bodied with good acidity and moderate tannins. Alcohol was at 13.5%. Flavors I detected were a fruit foundation of plum and dark berry, sweet clove, pepper, oak, and a touch of tar. This wine was a pretty good mouthful of viniferous enjoyment. It was especially round and full right at opening, but it remained quite nice throughout for an inexpensive Cab. A decent value.
* This was the retail price listed at the store where I bought my bottle. I got it on sale, but I’ve also seen it available for a much lower price (while supplies last, I suppose) at Trader Joe’s.
