2006 Zig Zag Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Mendocino County
Zig then Zag
Today’s 2006 Zig Zag Cabernet Sauvignon is a lovely follow-up to one of our best-selling Chardonnays from the budget-friendly Zig Zaggers.
This delightful treat is an easy-drinking wine with plenty of character for its relatively low price. The wine has a rich and savory nose while delivering rich, concentrated fruits on the palate.
If you are looking for a Cabernet that won’t break the bank - and won’t bore you to tears, like so many inexpensive Cabs do - this wine is sure to please. Decant for best results and be sure to squirrel some away for the fall and winter holidays.
Dark and slightly opaque with dark purple hues at the core. At the edges, dark garnet hues run a chubby ring around the glass.
Briar patch and blackberry compote meld with dark tobacco, braised plum, smoky cherry and baking spice.
Dried black currant, pomegranate, dried cranberry, plum skin, grilled nectarine and dark spice.
Dark fruits gradually give way as softly plush tannin spreads a gradual dryness across the entire palate.
Enjoy this wine with teriyaki spareribs. For dessert, enjoy with grilled peach or grilled nectarine, served with a dollop each of vanilla ice cream and mascarpone.
