Searidge Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 wine review by (PB)
This “bargain bin” wine which was bought for $5 actually has varietal characteristics. I tasted this wine blind against another Cabernet Sauvignon and picked it from the other one. Based on what? Based on the price of each wine. The other one was a $2.99 grab as a “what the heck” let’s see if its even palatable. More on that wine after this entry...
This wine actually has some pleasant–relatively speaking–aromas that are a bit fragrant and vegetal with some fruit to accompany it. In the mouth there is a hint of vanilla and a remote hint of cherry. First impression is tart, shallow and not much there. With some air, there is a suggestion of strawberries and a touch of chocolate and then zippo–nada.
Still, for this price. It is better than many wine I have had for significantly more. Raise a glass–but not of this.
