Bonterra Mendocino County Organic Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Red berries and light touches of tobacco and spice on the nose
Medium-bodied on the palate
More red berries, with plum and earthy notes on the finish

One of my perennial favorite bargains! For some reason, I'm paying less for this wine than I was five years ago. Recently, I've picked it up for $11 at one store and $12 at another. You'll more likely see this for $15-16.

The Bonterra organic approach is something you should read about on their website, so I won't go into it here. The finished product is just a terrific wine in the case of the Cabernet. (Their other varietals hold their own, too.) Easy drinking, nicely integrated flavors, and red fruit flavors are the hallmarks of this bottling.

Enjoy- and raise a glass!

I'm in love with this wine! Eating and drinking organic is so important for a healthier lifestyle. That's why this year one of my favorite gifts to give is organic gift baskets! Check out why I've choosen these baskets and how they made it all the way to the O List!

We tried this wine over Christmas as were thrilled. I have had much more expensive wines that have not been nearly as good as this one. I usually like a full bodied red, but felt the structure of this left nothing lacking. I am very happy to find a wine this great in this price range. GREAT FIND!!!
