Winking Owl Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Los Angeles County 2007
Winking Owl is a value-priced brand of wines produced in California. It’s a private label of Aldi supermarket chain (originally based in Germany, now scattered throughout the US). The wine under $5 wine is their equivalent of “Two Buck Chuck” and has garnered a devoted fanbase for its value.
Decent nose, full flavor initially, dark fruit with hint of wood, smooth although short finish.
This was my college wine. Aldi's was my savior back then. It was oaky, fruity, reasonably good for drinking, and because of the price it also made a great cooking wine. Especially with ridiculously discounted portabella mushrooms my roommate and I managed to find also at Aldi's.
Two and a half glasses
Light, transparent ruby color, has a nose of sweet berry, very reminiscent of a white zin, very light texture in the mouth, with light berry, slightly dryer than a white zin, oak was very weak. Okay for a beginner wine drinker.
Literally smells like fresh fruit, lightly of cloves and vanilla, but almost no oak. I was surprised at the jammy flavor and medium mouth-feel. Decent wine for the price, light lunch, or picnic.
