It’s another wine from the Vegan Vine! This is their 2008 cabernet sauvignon, and just like the last one, I drank it with my parents, and collected their fancy-wine-drinkers’ notes.
My dad noted its “deep red color,” and said that it was “not overly oaky,” while he tasted “raisin and dried cherry, with a spicy finish.” He felt it would be a “great complement to leek soup and grilled pineapples.” My ma also liked the “very deep and rich” color of the wine. She got “oak on the nose, and cedar,” and tasted “cherries and blackberries.” She also found the tannins to be “nicely balanced.”
I thought it had a good strong flavor, and was dry without making your mouth pucker. Very good, would drink again.
Let’s remind ourselves why specifically vegan wine is a good thing: Because, as our beloved Barnivore has taught us, even the most innocent-seeming alcohol might have been  filtered through animal products, which is unnecessary and also totally  gross. Vegan Vine takes away the risk—you always know your drink is  cruelty-free, which is awesome.
