External Reviews for Walnut Crest Cab. Sauv. Premier
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
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.
It's hard to imagine getting a better red wine for five bucks which makes this one of the best Best Buys out there. On the mark at all check points, with ripe cherry and plum flavors and a clean, smooth finish. Surprisingly solid.
