2009 Trim Wines Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $12)
**Best Buy** Made mostly from Mendocino County fruit, this is a really good value in a Cabernet. It’s dry, tart and grippy in tannins, and savory in blackberry, blueberry, espresso and cedar flavors.
Sourced from top sites throughout California, the '09 Trim Cabernet is composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc. It is rich and velvety, with an enticing mix of blackberry, currant, herb, and hazelnut aromas and flavors, and hints of cedar and toasty vanilla spice on the finish. The considerable portion of Cabernet Franc adds aromatic and structural complexity while keeping the density of the Cabernet in check, making for a nicely balanced and food-friendly red. This is indeed a remarkable value at $11.99!
