Castle Rock Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 realtime review by (PB)

Black cherry hue with sweet plum and blackberry--meah...
Palate--thin textured with bready notes, hot subdued black cherry fruit that finishes a bit bitter.

I just grabbed this a couple hours ago at a shop I haven't been to in a couple years. Since it was an 07 Napa Cab, at $10 I thought I might try it. I did a search on my iPhone at the store and found someone (Wine Advocate???)gave it 87points.

I bought it and just threw away $10 so you don't have to! This is not very varietal, and tastes all around marginal. Don't raise a glass of this plonk and shows you that even in a great vintage as 2007 is for Napa Cab, you can still get garbage.
