The medium body carries light delicious flavors of plum, cranberry, and licorice, with a wonderful spicy finish with just a hint of menthol.
The key to this wine is "balance", which it has, and for the money, ranks high on my buy list of Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
Robert Mondavi Napa Valley 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, $15.56-$29.99, 91 points.
The "Old Faithful" is a wine ( First Review) I reviewed before, but wanted to taste with the Kendall-Jackson to get my taste bearings as a plumb-line.
The thing that struck me was the "balance". Again you find a wonderful wine for between $15-$30, again scored 91 points, having a balance of fruit, acid, tannin, flavor and finish, which make this a great table wine, gift, or just to drink alone.
Two wines, about the same price, with very little separating them, but their very popular and familiar names. Wines that you can buy almost anywhere, and at these lower price-points will not disappoint!
