Turning Leaf Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2004
Wine Description & Tasting Notes: The grapes for this 2004 Barefoot Reserve Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon were grown in Sonoma County's prestigious Dry Creek Valley. High concentrations of gravel in the soil create the perfect drainage to allow varietal characteristics to flourish. Wine Information: Barefoot Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were hand picked and transferred into French oak following fermentation, where the wine aged for over six months. Enjoy the enticing aromas of plum and vanilla. Juicy blackberry flavors complement the rich, velvety finish.

Its not that its bad. Its that it is nothing. Bland, tasetless. No bouquet only a slight hot finish
It was delicious, the aroma pleasing, excellent legs, strong start and finish... Delicious. I will buy it again again. Best buy for less than $10 a bottle. (I bought the 1.5L for $16.
