Dona Paula Los Cardos Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 Wine Review (NW)
wild berries, cocoa, and a touch of mint on the nose
dense flavors and texture on the palate
moderately tannic finish of raspberry, chocolate, and cedar
Great value Cabernet from Argentina! This is a well-regarded Malbec producer who also does a nice job with Cab at a bargain price.
Interestingly, this is the first wine I opened in the new year- and shortly after my friend declared 2009 "the year of frugality". I paid $8 for the wine- how appropriate! Raise a glass!
