Casa la Luna 2000 Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y Leon Cabernet Sauvignon ($5.99)
Clear dark ruby with glints of orange against the light. Spicy fruit aromas, surprisingly reminiscent of cherry Kool-Aid, lead into a flavor that's grapey, simple and a bit sweet. US Importer: T.G.I.C. Importers Inc., Woodland Hills, Calif. (Sep 22, 2002)

FOOD MATCH: This simple, popular-style wine's soft and slightly sweet impression makes it competitive with jug wines at this price, but it shows little Cabernet character.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
