Earth Wise 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

Earth Wise Cabernet
With the recycled looking label and a name like "Earth Wise", this one caters to the ex-hippie baby boomers while meeting the price standards of the green college students. It's a bit of a shocker to see the Harris Teeter logo on the back of the label though. This was priced at $6.99 and found at the grocery store who's logo it bears.

Besides a chuckle at the grocery store logo, the back label also describes the wine with probably every wine descriptor possible:
Soft & fruity, this Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of blackberries and
cherries. Deep garnet in color, this wine has flavors of black cherries,
raspberries, and vanilla accented with lightly tosasted oak.

Can't miss there. It was the vanilla and oak that stood out nicely for me. Pretty happy with this green red wine for the price. 4.5/10 rating (+5 for being green - it ain't easy). Basically, you get what you pay for.
