Wine Wednesday!

How about another great Target clearance find for this snowy Wine Wednesday? Today’s fine feature is a Cabernet from Bogle Vineyards in California. It’s a 2009 which normally sells for around $11 a bottle. Of course stalking the Target clearance section led to me finding this bottle for under $8! You’ll enjoy this one if you appreciate a good heady red.

My notes:

  • color- dark ruby
  • scent- slight fruit, oak, grass
  • flavors- very mineral, earthy, notes of grass and berry

The experts: “Richly extracted cherry and cassis arrest the senses, holding captive on both the nose and the palate. Swiftly followed by black pepper and black olive, the supple mouthfeel fills out this full-bodied wine. Spicy American oak heightens the dense fruit, finishing with wisps of ground pepper and stellar tannins. Cellar for another 7-10 years, but don’t let anyone say you can’t enjoy it now…” from the winemakers themselves
