Deep berry flavored cabernet sauvignon. Nice.

Nice, spicy cab. Plummy with soft tannins and a bit of smokiness to round it out. Very good bargain at $9.

The 2010 vintage shows a big red ruby color. Aromas of red and black cherries and fleshy plums fill the glass. Oak aging adds a touch of vanilla and pie crust while also adding mouth feel and texture to the wine. The wine drinks of cherry tart, raspberries and boysenberry jam. Alex notes that this vintage has 'good freshness' and 'good acid'. The wine shows integrated tannins with mid-palate grip and a silky berry finish. In a nutshell, it's a juicy fruit forward wine with a great finish.

This has to be one of the best value Cabernets on the market. Itandrsquo;s rich and ripe in blackberry and currant flavors, with smooth tannins and a fine edge of acidity to brighten the fruit.

Der Wein duftet beerig zart, hat ein schönes, rundes Aroma, erinnert an Waldbeeren, mit feinwürzigen Tanninen im Abgang.

Even better is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon from California. There are 106,500 cases of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, all of which spends 14 months in French oak barrels. It displays a dense ruby color along with abundant notes of black currants, red currants, asphalt, damp earth and a touch of oak. This medium-bodied, richly fruity, surprisingly full and textured Cabernet should drink nicely for 2andndash;4 years.
