Bonterra Wine


It was a hot day, perhaps my review is inflated as a result of being refreshed in the sweltering heat; but I found the Bonterra sauvingnon blanc to be crisp and refreshing. The great sacrifice by the grape growers and wine producers did not result in a sacrifice in taste.


Pros: Organic, easy to drink

Cons: Not very interesting

I've had a few Bonterra wines, and I keep hoping one of them will change my mind.  A while back, I had one of their white wines and wasn't a huge fan.  But recently I thought I'd give their cabernet a try. fell pretty flat.  Literally flat.  It was a perfectly decent table wine.  Very easy to drink.  It just wasn't very interesting at all.  Some might call it bland, in fact.  It was just rather...monotone.  And boring.  It kind of reminded me of 2-buck chuck...except it cost $15.  For that much, I definitely expect a little bit more.  I certainly wouldn't refuse a glass if offered one (assuming that was the only choice).  But I don't think I'll be getting Bonterra again any time soon.
