Petit Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2008, South Africa - $12



The "Petit" line from Ken Forrester is the winery's value-driven everyday drinking line. This Bordeaux style red is equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and retails for around $12/bottle at Whole Foods, where I tasted it yesterday.

I tasted dark fruit, not gamey (I usually expect a little barnyard/gaminess from South African wines), and moderate tannins - a good value for the money.
