2000 Yosemite Road Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
Modesto, California
 
WB Rating: 81

 
Alcohol by volume: 12.5%
Price at time of purchase: $2.99 (Trader Joe's)
 
Type: Cabernet / Bordeaux
Principal varietal(s): 100% Cab

Who would have thought: an OK Cab for $2.99! I usually look for wines in the $5.99 to $9.99 range when roving the shelves at Trader Joe's for outrageous bargins, but the wife picked this one up. I put off opening it for a couple of months, in favor of more "promising" candidates, not expecting anything but a sour, tasteless, throat-wrenching experience. Our kudos to winemaker John Willumson, for saving those of us on a tight budget from terminal "throat-wrench". [MA] - MJA 2002-04-25

[annie  2004-11-15] I stumbled across this wine at a dollar store and really scored! I bought one bottle to test and went back the next day and bought 60 bottles all they had.. What a score wish there was more.  User Rating: 98.
