WHAT: Bonterra Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 (red) Rating: NNN
WHERE: Mendocino, California
WHY: Corporate-backed Bonterra is an effective advocate for progressive environmental practices in the vineyard. Having travelled from California, this reliable organic Cabernet loses some greenie points, but at least it’s widely available. Be sure to try the very tasty Zinfandel coming out in the fall.
