Trumpeter Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Cabernet Sauvignon from Argentina, South America
Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%
Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
Juicy berry fruit aromas lead into concentrated flavors of raspberries and blackberries. Well-balanced with firm tannins. Hints of vanilla,
cocoa and sweet oak appear on the finish.
"Sweet, rich and clean, with molasses, fig and pure berry fruit aromas. Rich and saturated, but balanced, with blackberry, brown sugar and chocolaty flavors. Finishes fairly long, with spice and some complexity. A surprisingly good bargain Cab.
"Broad and muscular, with a core of prune, coffee, plum and fig character that gives way to the loam-tinged finish. Drink now through 2012."
Earthy & Spicy
Best wine value ever. Served at a large party and everyone thought it was wonderful. Bought it on sale for $7.99 so it was even better!
Earthy & Spicy
The 09 vintage is very nice. Very smooth with berry and black fruit with an adorable nose.

Earthy & Spicy

(ahr-jen-TEE-nah) Now fifth in the world for wine production, Argentina is catching up in the quality wine sector.

Yet it's hard not to get caught up in the wine market of the world and some...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity.
