Another Great Wine From Santa Julia- Santa Julia Reserva Cabernet 2009

I was really impressed with Santa Julia’s new [+] line a couple of weeks ago so I was excited when I received a bottle from their Reserva line.  Santa Julia is a sustainable winery in Argentina with a wide variety of eco-friendly and organic wines at very reasonable prices.  I uncorked the bottle with a grilled, grass-fed sirloin, hoping it would be a perfect match.

Now The Fun Part- Tasting the Wine

Santa Julia Reserva Cabernet pours a dark plum color in the glass.  The nose has aromas of ripe plum, cherry, and sweet spices.  The rich and savory palate is filled with dark berries, tart cherries, and a hint of sweet tobacco followed by an incredibly smooth and lingering finish.  Quite the sophisticated Cabernet for $12!

My Wine Rating- B+

Food Pairing Suggestions- Perfect with a grilled steak, venison, or a rack of lamb.
