From the Fetzer family, this Cabernet is produced from organically grown grapes. Rich plum and berry balanced by American and French oak creates a full-bodied wine that would complement a side of beef.
Blueberry pie and clove predominating, the wine is tannic, super-structured, with a spicy finish. A good deal for sure. -According to the Wine Enthusiast
Bonterra has long been a champion of organic grape growing, and their wines have always been classic expressions of varietal character. So it is with this inexpensive Cabernet. Itrsquo;s dry, richly tannic and flavorful in blackberries and cherries, with a ripe edge of cocoa. Fully drinkable now, it has real elegance and class.
Winemaker Notes - Cabernet Sauvignon is known for creating wines of amazing density and complexity with both concentrated and nuanced avors. In making Bonterra Cabernet Sauvignon, I like to add to these layers of avor by blending in small amounts of other red varietals to add color, texture, and a bit of spice. Varieties and vineyard lots are kept separate until the best lots are blended together to create the nal wine. is Cabernet o ers aromas of bright cherry, currant, and raspberry with notes of toasted oak and vanilla.

The rsquo;02 was quite a good Cabernet and so is this one, from a winery whose organic grapes produce dependable wines across all varieties. This bottling is nicely dry and balanced, with a classic Cabernet profile. Drink now.
