Barboursville 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon

Varietal:  Cabernet Sauvignon

Region:  Virginia – USA

Cost:  $14.99

 

Dark red coloring, with flavors of berry and chocolate, this Cabernet Sauvignon carries great tannins that some may find overpowering, but that will be a great compliment to juicy red meat or a sauce-heavy pasta dish.  Good for sipping by itself, but better paired with food thanks to the dryness of the wine. 

 

Recommendation:  Certainly worth picking up if you’re looking for a Virginia Cabernet Sauvignon that is more in the European style than that of California.  Strong tannins may be too much for those that aren’t a fan of dry wines, but those that are will find it quite enjoyable.
