Bonterra Mendocino County Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Plum, red berries, chocolate, and an herbal layer on the nose

full bodied on the palate

smooth finish of black cherry, cola, and vanilla

I've enjoyed the past five or six vintages of Bonterra Cab and this is the best yet! And it's still a great deal at $13-14. Don't miss it- some wine shops tuck it away only in the "organic" section. Organically-grown grapes, great flavor, and still roughly the same price as the beginning of the decade- raise a glass!

typically, I would dismiss organics. simply because I would assume that more effort was being made to be certified organic instead of the craft of wine-making. this one works on both levels...i buy this one quite often when i'm at whole foods....
