2007 Evil Cabernet Sauvignon

From: Southeast Australia

Price: $12

Serve with: Red meat, pasta

This medium-bodied, nonvintage red wine is a blend of seven red-wine varietals - from the well-known cabernet sauvignon to the less-well-known carignane. (Its white counterpart is a comparably charming and identically priced seven-grape melange.) The red wine is well-balanced, fruity, ready to drink now - with flavors of blackberry, black pepper, cherry, vanilla and smoked meat. It finishes with good acidity and finds a good middle ground between simplicity and snootiness.
