2008 Gnarly Head Cabernet Sauvignon: A mild, easygoing wine

nov. 6, 2010: i bought this wine on the recommendation of my gleaner coworker donna stinnett, who described it as a good wine for the price. we agree. it was about $8 at the schnucks on north green river (their wine selection seems interesting, actually, and is much bigger than the one on washington). i thought the texture was smooth and soft. the nose reminded me of some malbecs, probably because of the tannins. the flavor was a bit sweet but hard to pinpoint exactly. greg said he'd get it again. would go well with a steak. 14.5 percent alcohol.
