Wine: Barefoot Cabernet Sauvignon

WineryBarefoot Cellars
TypeCabernet Sauvignon
YearUnknown. No date on label.
LocationModesto, California

Overall: A bit fruity for me. Not a strong Cabernet Sauvignon, seems almost a bit watery. I'm a fan of an ass-kicking Cab, which this isn't.

This wine was actually recommended to me by a friend, and came highly rated. Unfortunately, it falls way short of expectations. The lack of a vintage date on the label should have been a clue, perhaps. The label itself is ©2003, so maybe it's a recent vintage. (Then again, it isn't too recent, is it? 2003 is now three years ago.)

If you like a fruity, less dry Cab, this is for you. It's a cheap buy, and definitely beats many others in it's price-class.
