Bonterra Mendocino County Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Nose of red berries and cassis

Fleshy texture on the palate

Finish of black cherry, plum, and vanilla

To me, this wine is an old friend. I've enjoyed it for the past six years or so, and the price has hardly crept up. While I often see it priced in the high teens, I typically pay about $14 or so.

It's not a dark, brooding Cab but rather a wine built on red berry and cherry flavors. When you're looking for such a wine, this should fit the bill. And it's from organically-grown grapes to boot. Not a blockbuster, but rather this wine shows smoothness and rounded flavors. Raise a glass!
