2020 Domaine Bousquet Cabernet Sauvignon

Having revie­wed the Mal­bec from Domai­ne Bous­quet a little whi­le ago, we heard from readers that the­re was a Caber­net out the­re too that was super good, and also under $10.

It took a little whi­le for it to appear around us, but here it is, in the 2020 vin­ta­ge. You’ll quickly note the Cost­co dis­coun­ted pri­ce of $7.99 until 4/10; off a regu­lar pri­ce of $9.59. This bottle also proudly pro­mo­tes their use of orga­nic gra­pes which seems to be a com­mon approach across the winery’s enti­re portfolio.

We were a little con­fu­sed by the Suc­kling rating. On the Cost­co pla­card abo­ve it says 92 points, but the stic­ker on the bottle says 90 points. Wine.com con­firms the 90 points, and also lists a retail pri­ce of $13.

In the glass this wine is a deep ruby in color with dried dark fruit, and earthy soil on the nose; medium plus in body; black cherry, black­berry and plum fla­vors; it’s aci­dic into the finish which wraps up a little light. But ove­rall not a bad buy at all, even without the limi­ted time dis­coun­ted price.

We are going to rate this one simi­larly to the Mal­bec at 87 points. We went 88 on the Mal­bec, but both the­se wines from Domai­ne Bous­quet are exce­llent buys, and the orga­nic fruit is another bonus.
