Three Wishes Cabernet Sauvignon(3 out of 5)

Standard

 

 

 

 

 

 

ImageI was just posting about the importance of a light easy to drink red that goes with just about anything. I think I may have found it. Or my wine-clone may have found it. Or to be more accurate, Nancy found it. I would completely classify this as an “everyday wine”. 

I have tried Three Wishes Merlot and that was too much…too funky. This is also funky, but an easier to take(and taste) funky. There’s good funk(Prince and Parliament) and there’s bad(crotch rot and stanky ass feet). This is good. Just good. Not phenomenal. I can’t really detect much of a taste here, except that it’s not overly oaky and it’s not downright vinegar city. I just honestly can’t figure out what it tastes like- what the tasting notes are. If I didn’t know better, I’d say lima beans, but that’s impossible(It is, right? Right???). It does remind me of Sutter Home a bit, but Sutter Home, I can detect what wisps of what I’m drinking and smelling. Not the case here. I think if you need an easy wine to just have for a relaxing meal, this is great. I could easily pair this with Hamburger Helper or with chicken wings, and it would work. There aren’t a lot of durable wines in ways of matching up okay with multiple dishes- this is so light and indiscernible that it works. 

Whole Foods sells this. It goes for around $3.00 a bottle, so quite affordable. The label is very simple and very nicely done. I would recommend this as an everyday wine. If you need a good simply priced wine for dinner, this is a good choice. I wouldn’t serve it for New Year’s Eve or at someone’s wedding reception. Come to think of it, I wouldn’t serve it to Meatloaf either, but it’s sublime and simplistic, and there aren’t a lot of wines like that. Mucho star points for the easy to obtain, easy to pay for, and easy to pair with anything.

About generationgbooks

I read a ridiculous amount of books in a ridiculously quick amount of time. I read everything- fiction, history, sports, political science, fantasy, young adults, kids, romance- everything. I have worked in books almost half of my life now, and I never get bored with them. I need an outlet for books, where I can reach many people who may or may not give a fig about my opinions. I'm kind of known for rambling about books, so I figure it's about time I get off my lazy ass and take it to the blogosphere, where I have had the great luck of meeting many wonderful people inflicted with this book-disease. Personal stuff? Not much. I work too much, I'm single so I have more time to deal with this and less to deal with BS. I'm a die-hard Duranie and 80's fan. I am way too entertained with social media and astrology(for those of you who give a fig, I'm a Capricorn, or the sexier description- a seagoat.) for mine and the world's- own good. Only insanity can result from me blogging. That said, here goes!
