Wine Wednesday: 2007 Newman's Own Cabernet Sauvignon

Now, I know what you're thinking. The late Paul Newman's company - Newman's Own - makes salsa, marinades, salad dressing, cookies, lemonade, cereal, popcorn, and pizza. What's the only remaining food group missing?

If you answered "Ice Cream," you're wrong. (But good idea!)

You should have answered wine!

In general I've found Newman's Own products to be darn tasty, so when I was at the opening of the Bloom grocery store off of Beaties Ford Rd., I decided to splurge and grab one.

This 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is heavy on the fruit. It is moderately dry and leaves a fuzzy feeling on the tongue. It has strong amounts of cherry and blackberry, with a hint of spice. While my nose detected some vanilla, which was completely overwhelmed by the previously mentioned fruit.

It's a decent wine, but for the $12 (sale price) I paid, I've had better. Then again, I've had worse, too!

Wine Rating: 2.5/5

Price: $$
