Paso Robles, California
Review: This is a simple, light bodied Cabernet from Paso Robles, California. It has nice aromas of black fruit, which are echoed on the palate -- along with just a touch of anise. The wine has a pleasant texture with only a hint of tannin and moderate acidity. Overall, this is a pleasing and easy drinking wine. I must say I appreciate the sugar level in this wine: a lot of similarly priced reds have a bit of sweetness to them, but the Caretaker is nice and dry!
Food Pairing: Great with a burger!
Bottom Line: A light and easy Cab, perfect for the end of summertime. Not too shabby for $9.
