Fife 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

It is so hard now a days to find a complex Cabernet Sauvignon from California under 10 dollars. Really it's unheard of, but my friends, I have found such a bottle. This reasonably priced Cab is found at Trader Joes for only 8.00 dollars. Here are my notes on this wine, starting with the nose of course, I pick up Black cherry and berries, with a hint of cloves and tobacco. And on the taste, most of the nose seems to translate onto the palate. Upon my tongues encounter with this wine, it seems submerged in a sea of blackberries, black cherries and cassis. My palate also catches hints of tobacco and black tea in the mid. Then something interesting came about on the outside edges of my tongue, I enjoyed nuances of Blueberries transitioning into lush round tannins on the finish. All of the qualities found in this bottle, left my mouth watering for more. So in conclusion, definitely make a trip over to your local Trader Joe's and enjoy some good vino for cheap.

By the way Happy New Year, and if you are looking for some quality sparkling wines to bring in 2010, check out my posting entitled Bubbles, Bubbles, and more bubbles.
