Charles Shaw 2000 California Cabernet Sauvignon ($2.00)
Clear ruby red. Faint, undifferentiated fruit aromas with pleasantly spicy nuances. Tart, ripe fruit flavors are simple but balanced. The shy aroma loses points, but the wine's flavor significantly exceeds expectations. US Importer: (Jan 17, 2003)

FOOD MATCH: Fine with a simple chicken fricassee.

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.
