Glen Ellen Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Glen Ellen, California, Reserve, Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 There’s a sense of whole berries, sweet and a little tooty-fruity with a vanilla veneer.  In the mouth this wine is a bit sweet, quite fruity and fairly gripping – disappointing. Vinted and Bottled in Livermore and Ripon, CA 12.5% purchased for $3.59 at Bottle Barn

    Nice to find a review of such a cheap wine….we all have so many friends that simply aren’t willing (or sometimes able) to pay more then $10 for a bottle of wine and finding information in that price range outside of $2 Chuck at Trader Joe’s is exceedingly difficult.

    Pretty amazing to see a California Cab at 12.5% alcohol….when you say sweet are we talking about a little residual sugar there?

    Hi Mark, I’ve been in France and immersed in wine which I’ll write about soon.

    In the meantime, to your question, yes, there is a bit of residual sugar in this Cabernet. Low levels of RS are a more common component than we might think in ‘dry’ red wines. Thanks for asking the question. Cheers! RJ
