2006 Newman's Own Cabernet Sauvignon

I have to admit – I like Paul Newman's products but I have no idea who he my attempts to come up with a snarky comment about this all I could think of was Robert Redford or Richard Dreyfuss – so who the hell is Paul Newman, other than a guy who makes solid pasta sauce and lemonade? I think he taught Tom Cruise how to hustle? Anyway – this was about $12 and is made by the Three Thieves so I'm going in with high expectations.

Twizzlers and smoke on the nose – an odd combination.

Mildly tannic, a nice fuzzy feeling coats the tongue, some nice blackberry notes, a bit of vanilla, and some very dark, very ripe – almost bordering on slightly dried – fruit, like a plum that needs six hours in the dehydrator but only got three. Very nice – soft and easy drinking.

A little bit of wood and a whole punch of black fruit fade quickly..

Some may complain it's too simple and perhaps it is, but at this pricepoint there's no issue here at all.

Why are there quotation marks on the bottle?

"Cabernet Sauvignon"?
