Red Diamond Cabernet Sauvignon 2006Posted: December 31, 2008 | Author: admin | Filed under: Wine | 1 Comment »
I bought this wine at Trader Joe’s yesterday, I think for about $7, give or take a dollar. It was one of the wines being promoted. We had it last night with the Patagonian roasted lamb with apple-curry sauce, and it actually went pretty well. I found the Red Diamond to be all in all a pleasant wine, but a bit too acidic. It didn’t have the balance of an older or more expensive wine. But it was moderately fruity, with light tannins and perfectly OK to drink.
I probably wouldn’t buy it again, because it’s not special enough to merit a second try, but I won’t mind drinking the leftovers tonight 🙂
