I'm no sommelier, or even someone who can give a coherent review about wine that uses the right terminology — so I'll leave the real reviews more for the experts — but I can tell you if I do or don't like something I've tasted. (In the meantime, I'll try and work on my wine-describing skillset...)
Enter Beaulieu Vineyard California BV Coastal Estates Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 ... A tasting note on Scrugy tells us this about the red:
Color: Ruby Nose: Very fruity, with black and Bing cherry, followed by some fresh herbal notes. Palate: Medium-full and while not complex, has very good "quaffer" characteristics of tasty red fruit with some brambly blackberry underneath.
BV is a rather widely-carried wine. I found it at my local grocer for $7.19.
