Tasty Cabernet Sauvignons

By: Cresta

Life has been completely crazy lately! I have had a chance to enjoy a couple of wines…just haven’t had much time to write about them. Here are a couple of nice Cabernet Sauvignon varieties I’ve recently tasted.

2009 Fetzer Cabernet Sauvignon. A Cab Sauv from California with flavors of black cherry, vanilla and chocolate. Medium bodied with moderate tannins, this wine is easy to drink. It paired nicely with the pork loin we had for dinner.

2010 Root: 1 Cabernet Sauvignon. Root: 1 wines are known as the “original ungrafted” wines as the grapes are grown in the ungrafted root systems of the Colchagua Valley in Chile, which results in intense, ripe fruit flavors.

This wine has a strong cherry aroma with deep flavors of tangy blackberry and vanilla. It is a full-bodied wine with soft tannins and good structure.  I’d love to eventually try the Root:1 Carmenere and Sauvignon Blanc.

You should be able to find these wines for $10-$12 each.

    cabernet Sauvignon is a great red wine which has high tannin levels. Tannins are those good things that help your heart. Meals that pair well are steak, rack of lamb, roast chicken and duck.
