Surprisingly good quality for the price. Rich flavors of cherry and black currant and vanilla. Fairly light for a cab, but in a good way.

Herersquo;s an herbal, minty Cab with some true varietal notes. Itrsquo;s very dry and clean in the mouth, with melted tannins. Everyday-style price, but with some real elegance, especially in the velvety texture.

Therersquo;s a refreshing tang to the berry and herbal flavors, with pleasant cola and spice notes and smooth tannins. Drink now.

Dark purple in color, with a rich nose of blackberry, spice and vanilla aromas. On the palate, the wine offers ripe blackberry, chocolate, and focused spices, enhanced with gentle vanilla flavors. Tannins are firm in this medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, with pleasant toastiness emerging on the finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 - Fetzer: Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 - Rotwein von FetzerEin glänzendes warmes Kirsch- bis Purpurrot erfüllt das Glas. Der Cabernet Sauvignon von Fetzer präsentiert ein fruchtiges Bukett aus Kirschen, Brombeeren und schwarzen Johannisbeeren, die von süßen Kuchengewürzen (Vanille, Zimt) und dunkler Schokolade umspielt werden. Am Gaumen wirkt der Cabernet Sauvignon saftig, vollmundig und kraftvoll mit einer feinen Balance von reifer Brombeer- und Kirschfrucht und gut strukturiertem Tannin. Im langen Finale zeigt er sich leicht rauchig mit würzig-röstigem Nachhall von Kakao und Toast.Ein köstlicher Begleiter von Rindfleisch und Lamm gegrillt und mit würziger Barbecuesauce, zu gefüllten Paprikaschoten und Auberginen oder Pastagerichten mit saftigem Tomatensugo.Daten von Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 von FetzerWeingut: FetzerLand: USARegion: KalifornienRebsorte: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, 4% Petit Syrah, 3% Ruby Carbernet, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% MerlotInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol. %Gesamtsäure: 6,3 g/lRestzucker: 5,0 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 18°CFassreife: jaLagerfähigkeit: bis 2012 Kalifornien

Smooth-textured currant, cranberry, cedar and spice notes are easy-drinking, ending with a tobacco edge. Drink now.
