Harthill Farms Cabernet an Amateur Review

Recently on a trip to Whole Foods, I noticed that there is a plethora of cheap selections in an assortment of varietals and labels. 

Why didn't I notice this a month ago? As some of you know I joined weight watchers and even though nothing is off limits (the exact reason I love WW) a glass of wine as I like it served, to the tippy top is A LOT of points. So I will no longer (well till I drop a considerable amount of weight) be reviewing cheap wine. For the next couple of months it's going to be all cocktails and light beer. You didn't think I was gonna say sobriety did you? 

Here is my last wine review until I'm five pounds from lifetime. 

This 4.99 Cabernet was flavorful. I could taste the sweet berries and it's rich earthiness. Now it is not going be mistaken for a pricey bottle, but if paired with a medium cooked new york strip steak it could pass in my humble opinion for a decent bottle of wine.

I will definitely buy and drink this again, but not without buying a steak to go with it.

P.S. If you have any good suggestions for light beers I should try, Please send them my way.


  1. I haven't seen that wine, but we probably have it at our store, unless it is not available in our region (midwest). I am so cheap when it comes to wine! I drink Three Wishes which is 2.97 a bottle. I like the Cab-Sauv and the Merlot. It is a Whole Foods exclusive wine. I'll have to ask my husband about a low calorie beer. We drink a lot of rich dark beer.

    1. 2.97 for 3 wishes! it's 1.99 here in the bay area. So this $5, might be more expensive there....

      I look forward to your suggestions, I'm fond of blue moon, red stripe, modelo especial, and saparro.
