Wine Wednesday: Fox Brook Cabernet

Last night I had the distinct pleasure of meeting a Foodie reader. Jinny wrote the winning entry for the Write a Review contest, which appeared about 30 posts ago. So, last night I sat down at Corkscrew with Jinny and her boyfriend over one two three (lost count) glasses of wine, and had a great time.

During our time there I sampled the Fox Brook Cabernet. It's a solid wine, but far from transcendent. From my understanding, it is Albertson's (California grocery chain) equivalent of Trader Joe's "Two Buck Chuck."

This cabernet has strong flavors of fruit. In particular, I noticed plum and blackberry, with a hint of currant. Its smell is also on the fruity side, but this doesn't overwhelm the wine. The wine isn't dry, and has a smooth finish.

It's good, but not great.
