Walnut Crest Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 Wine Review (NW)
Nose of currants and sage
Firm texture on palate
Finish of dark berries and herbs
Not bad, really! You'll find this wine next to the jugs and often in a magnum format. If you see a 750mL bottle, it will probably be around $7.
I wouldn't normally grab this over other value wines I'm familiar with, but it was my only option. I was on an Amtrak train and this was the red wine available. After a couple of sips, I realized it's not a bad wine. It has some of the classic flavors of a Chilean Cab (produced by Vinedos Emiliana) and tastes well made for the money. Quite frankly, I was pleasantly surpised. Raise a glass!
