2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
Today’s wine is a easy drinking, austere wine that, for the price, really pleased our tasting panel. Lighter in style than other Languedoc wines that we’ve sampled, this wine shows the earthy terroir of the region.
Where California Cabernet is loaded with concentrated, dark fruits, this wine is more savory and earthy. This gives the wine a style that fans of Gamay or Mourvèdre would appreciate.
At less than $10, we suggest that you stock up on this easy-drinker.
Slightly opaque, with dark maroon hues at the edges, darkening to purple at the heart of the wine.
Dark, stewed fruit of plum, black cherry, boysenberry, and dark dried cranberry. Underneath, black licorice and tomato stem.
Dark, austere fruit of black cherry, stewed plum, dried cassis mixes with dried leaves and a hint of dark mineral.
Austere and mild, with baked plum tart that gives way to a dark mineral chewiness.
Enjoy this wine with a grilled burger and garlic parmesan fries or a fresh from the oven pizza.
