Trader Joe’s Vinas Chilenas 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva

Price: around:$2.99

Color: Deep burgundy almost purple

Nose: Spice, Berries, Cedar, and eucalyptus, yeah complex

Taste: Medium body and fairly balanced. Soft tannins with a tiny bit of bitterness which may benefit from a longer aeration period.

Summary: The complex nose and color might lead you to believe a hearty and bold cab awaits you, but that is not the case.  This is a fair tasting wine given the price, but at this price range I think Santa Ema cabernet sauvignon is a better wine.  You can also find it at Trader Joe’s for a buck more than this wine.
