2011 Pennywise Cabernet Sauvignon, California

2011 Pennywise Cabernet SauvignonColette Bancroft, writing in the Tampa Bay Times, recommended this 2011 Pennywise Cabernet Sauvignon which she said would find favour with those “whose taste runs to lots of juicy fruit and who don’t care a fig for structure.”

She said: “This blend of cab plus snippets of Sirah and Merlot is tasty, though, and a good deal at $11 or less at wine shops and elsewhere.

“Big blackberry and black currant lead the way on the nose, with subtler notes of cherry and mocha, perhaps even a hint of pipe tobacco. The blackberry recedes on the tongue but the other three flavors are up front and lively. There’s even a bit of sulfur-y blackstrap molasses nipping around the edges of the palate and a faint prune bass note. The prune intensifies and carries a rich, dark, intense finish.”

Price: $11
