Wine 4: Recas Cabernet Sauvignon
While making my way up and down the abundance of wine aisles at the Total Wine store in Northridge, looking for my next new bottle of wine to review, I was overwhelmed by the typical locations that are generally showcased; California, Chile, Argentina.  So I was surprised when I saw the label of my chosen wine for this review listed its origins as Romania, yes, Romania. Needless to say I was interested and in keeping with my intended purpose of this blog the priced was under ten dollars, around $5.99, so I committed to the Romania Cab, "Recas".

After twisting off the cap of the Recas Cab I poured a nice dark, deep burgundy glass of wine, and smelled the aroma of this very foreign wine.  The smell is sweet and spicy, very similar to the flavor which starts with a strong pleasant taste of vanilla and ends with just the right amount of spiciness. The Recas Cabernet Sauvignon is a great wine to serve to friends and especially in mixed company of red wine drinkers. The origin of the bottle is interesting enough to be a great conversation starter when you offer a bottle Recas as a hostess gift.

All in all, I recommend giving the Recas Cabernet Sauvignon a chance, I do not think you would be disappointed.
