Doña Paula Los Cardos 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, $7.99-$13.99, 86 points, poured an opaque ruby trending brick-red toward the rim-ring.
The nose was black currant, leather, and a coffee component.
The medium body carried good acidity, mild-plus background tannins, and flavors of tart pomegranate, oak, barely ripe black cherry notes, and hints of eucalyptus.
Finished fair on the trailing palate with a well integrated 14% alcohol.
Doña Paula Los Cardos 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a good choice for the budget-minded as a red table wine.
