Wine Wednesday: Bluebird California Cabernet Sauvignon

posted on June 20th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

A lively, expressive wine that features a pleasant cacophony of red berry flavors and a light inviting texture. The wine also exhibits aromas of strawberry and hints of chocolate and cola. Dark cherry and floral qualities of lavender break through on the mid palate, while rich characteristics of blackberry and nutmeg emerge on the mouth coating finish. Full-bodied and well balanced with good acidity and woody tannins make this California Cabernet a great food wine. Suggested Retail $16.99/ Sale price is 2 for $15.00!
