Charles Shaw Cabernet Sauvignon California 2008

Member Review by Winooooo:

$3 a bottle at MN trader Joes, its $2 in California because of transportation cost. For a cheap Cabernet you CANNOT go wrong with this, this is personally my choice for using in Sangria. I make an effort to buy a bottle or two every time I stop by TJ's because its so affordable. Has a slightly oaked taste, a little acidic, and a mild tannin. More black currant flavor then any of the other fruits(blackberry, cherryish). My girl and I drank three bottles last night, so maybe that says a little something about myself. -Cheers.
