Wishing Tree Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot 2004 wine review by (PB)

This is yet another in a long line of Aussie blends that have flooded the American wine market with mediocre wines.

This previously reviewed wine is a medium garnet in color with a bouquet that is fairly mild especially for these two grapes. It has some green notes while the nose is oaky and green peppery yet only mildly.

In the mouth this wine is shallow, very dry and although there is nothing offensive or overtly wrong, it is just plain unremarkable. The finish is the same though a little tannic.

Now let’s be fair; this was a $9 wine and in this case, you get what you pay for. It is what you would expect get for the price. But today’s wine market is so glutted, that even at this price point, you can find many, many much better–even remarkable-wines for the same price. So hunt around and raise a glass!
