Wine Review & Rating: ** $ Bouchon Superior Cabernet Sauvignon, California, 2007

Find prices and retail availability for Bouchon cabernet.

Initial review, by way of background: This is Bouchon Superior Cabernet Sauvignon, California, 2007, a bargain priced red.

In the glass: Ruby magenta.

On the nose: Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, shows light red sweet berries.  Seems sweet, fruity and simple.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are tangy and bright mid-red fruits.  It is stuck somewhere between a simple pinot noir and a simple cabernet sauvignon.  In a word, simple.  In a few more words, simple, light, pleasant medium red sipper.

In summary: Overall, rates two stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
