Fish Eye Cabernet Sauvignon

2004 Ripon, California. $7.70 for 750 ml
(Red Wine)

This Cabernet reminded me very much of the Coastal Ridge Cab I’ve reviewed earlier.

Except this time, alas, I did not smell any lavender. (Which I kind of liked about the Coastal Ridge Cab.) And, this time, it wasn’t so much an oxidized smell/flavor that bothered me as it was the hint of rotting vegetable undertones.

Suffice it to say that the Fish Eye Cabernet Sauvignon had some nice, round, berry-smooth flavors and was milder on the tannins than a lot of Cabernet. While it was a pleasant wine to sip, the vegetable flavors did interfere with an otherwise pleasing quaff.

Bottom Line? Pass it up for a better quality Cab sans vegetables at a comparable price.
