Fetzer Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast Five Rivers Ranch 2009

Member Review by BobbyC10:

I was disappointed with this cab. With a well recognized wine like Fetzer my expectations were high and they were not met with this wine. Granted I only paid $8 for the bottle but I believe there should have been more to it.

Five Rivers Winery:
Throughout literature, in both modern and ancient times, there have been five basic elements that give life on the planet. Our wine, Five Rivers, takes its name from these five elements which shape our vineyard and enliven our wines. Our vibrant red goddesses, the flowing icons of our labels, embody these elements. The Goddesses of Air, Fire, Earth, Time and Water serve as our inspiration and are representation of a world just waiting to be discovered.

Surprisingly full bodied & very rich with a high fruitful bouquet. Lovely. Thee best I've tried so far (I've tasted many a Cabernet Sauvignon *my favorite wine*) and found that price is...moot!

Pleasant and simple. Would be a typical of a $15 to $20 cab. But it's under $10. Awesome at this price. Like pretty much everything else Fetzer makes.

Great wine for under $10! Strong berry, particularly plum and a hint of blackberry with a tad of complex floral. Slightly dry on the finish. Go get it!

I liked it. I thought it presented a full taste of berry and plum. I alos enjoyed the finish. It may not be anything that terribly stands out, but for <$10, I'll take it.

Dark purple in color, with a rich nose of blackberry, spice and vanilla aromas. On the palate, the wine offers ripe blackberry, chocolate, and focused spices, enhanced with gentle vanilla flavors. Tannins are firm in this medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, with pleasant toastiness emerging on the finish.

Sattes Purpur. Reiches würziges Cabernetbouquet.

Light-bodied, with a pleasant tanginess. Wild berry and cedar flavors mingle well. Drink now.

Dark garnet in color, with a rich nose of blackberry, cassis, spice and vanilla. Flavors of ripe blackberry, chocolate, and cinnamon, are enhanced with notes of soft vanilla. Tannins are firm in this medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, with pleasant toastiness emerging on the finish.

Quite firm, with toasty oak framing black currant and herbal notes. Drink now through 2005.

Here's an herbal, minty Cab with some true varietal notes. It's very dry and clean in the mouth, with melted tannins. Everyday-style price, but with some real elegance, especially in the velvety texture.

There's a refreshing tang to the berry and herbal flavors, with pleasant cola and spice notes and smooth tannins. Drink now.
