Walnut Crest Cab. Sauv. Premier 2008
External Reviews for Walnut Crest Cab. Sauv. Premier
Mouthcoating, this wine is thick with ripe fruit and round tannins, offering berry, tobacco and herb flavors.
This soft-textured Cabernet from Chile has plenty of up-front appeal, with rich, dense, forward flavors of black currant and plum, and a price tag that makes a good choice when the occasion calls for multiple bottles. Drink now.
A light, smooth, mature red wine. Spicy, minty notes accent the soft caramel-scented black cherry flavors that sneak in on the finish. Drinkable now.
Shows the bell peppr and tobacco leaf side of Cabernet, but still has enough fresh black cherry to keep it interesting.
At six bucks, we'd take a tasty mouthful for fruit without complaint, but Walnut Crest takes it further, offering a peppery, varietally correct Cabernet with enough tooth to grapple with a flank steak. A by-the-case buy.
A great introductory Cabernet with soft, round tannins, this is an approachable wine, not too dry, with a refreshing purity of fruit. The flavors are of dark berries - blueberry, blackberry and currant. Easy red to drink, attractive for this price range with the added bonus of being produced from organically grown grapes.
Silky, full-bodied red wine. A pleasing complement to any hearty meal, particularly roasts, stews, prime rib and strong cheeses. Serve at room temperature. Color: Deep red. Bouquet: Complex, with cherry and currant aromas. Taste: Rich, silky, with black-cherry flavors and vanilla notes
