Braidenwood Estates Cabernet Sauvignon (N.V.) wine review by (PB)
This wine was sitting in a bin with a Merlot and a Chardonnay by the same vintner all half bottles and a sign that was pushing them—2 for $6.
Since I had not heard of this winery, I thought I would give it a try. (Some of these wines can really surprise you.)
There is light fruit in the bouquet with fresh cherries at the rear. The bouquet reminds me a bit of a red jug wine. It is shallow but certainly drinkable. With a few minutes of air, this wine actually gives up a cinnamon spice in the nose which is both stunning and quite nice. This wine would be less than $6 for a full bottle and frankly you can do a lot worse.
Raise a glass to cheap value quaffs.
