Food Pairings for Oak Leaf Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Lodi
During the July Fourth weekend (2009), I attended an outdoor party on the banks of the Yahara River north of Stoughton, Wisconsin. Oak Leaf cabernet sauvignon was one of the red wines choices offered and always being the inquisitive (never heard of the label before) I asked for a glass. Not knowing anything about the wine or it's low cost, I was pleasantly surprised by the chunky fresh cranberries, dark color and medium body. So when I asked what vintage it was, the host had no idea what I was was talking about and instead handed me the bottle. I was shocked...it was non-vintage and I ... liked it! I was impressed, but keep in mind the nose was raw and the wine was monolithic. But it's fruity, easy drinking and not offensive. On the 100 point WS scale, I'd rate it 83 pts. The non-vintage aspect of this wine may make it difficult to acquire consistent bottlings.

I think this box of Cabernet Sauvignon kind of lacks in flavor. I like the stronger flavors of the grape to come though. Maybe this batch is different from what others have had (reviewed). The flavor that exists is still good. I can't give it anywhere near five glasses, but the price is unbeatable for what you get.
Not a bad price, but flavor is a little lacking. that's my preference, most people will probably love it.
I have 2 glasses of red wine daily for my HDL. Not as good as $25 per bottle wine but not noticeably worse than anything less expensive.
Ok this a good drink for the buck, the wine group who makes oak leaf was smart hooking up with Wally world . Up hear in NH Oak leaf is flying off the shelf's Wine should be fun and its funner when its cheep
