Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Southbrook Vineyards 2009 Wine Review
A tasty blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37.5% Cabernet Franc, 6.6% Merlot grapes. Medium- to full-bodied with blackberry notes. Smooth with toasty oak. 4.4/5

|Mark Britton rated this wine as 4.2/5 with the following review:|
I found this to be a black cherry bomb on both the nose and the palate with slight hints of vanilla... but only slight. I also found the wine to be overly sour which lingered into a decently long finish. To me this is a food wine, not a sipping wine, but likely wouldn't make my top recommendations list.
