I grabbed this bottle in a hurry a few nights ago. Seeing that I enjoyed other bottles from this producer, notably the Pinot Grigio, I thought I’d give this one a try and a quick review. And since I’m planning to enjoy some brisket and potato salad tonight, I thought I’d go ahead and pour a glass while I cook a pot of red beans. It’s practically a down-home party in my kitchen tonight.
So, the wine. I must admit that it’s a bit much for the meal I’ve planned, and I’ll probably switch to a lighter red when I put food to plate. But for piddling in the kitchen, it’s a pleasant, hearty Cab – fruit-forward, cocoa undertones, and a big nose. It smells like black cherries and licorice. Very nice for the the price – about $6.50-$7, just about everywhere.
