Lindemans' Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Coonawarra Wine Review by Billy
Nose: Strong charcoal, cherry cola and sweet oak
Palate: silky smooth with soft tannins at the back. Svelte but lacking personality
Finish: slightly acidic with some not unpleasant underripe blueberry notes.
Overall: PB reviewed the 2001 vintage here so check that out. This wine was about $10. It is an extremely drinkable and accessible $10 wine. If you are looking for easy going $10 or under red wine, this is a solid choice. I would not call it key example of Cabernet Sauvignon, but I would classify it as a good bargain red. Worth it for parties and guests who want "red wine" and don't care what kind it is.
