Winking Owl Cabernet Sauvignon(-1 out of 5)

Standard

ImageContinuing in our series of Winking Owl reviews, next in the line of fire is the cabernet sauvignon. I would almost rather wash my fine china in this stuff than to drink it. Unfortunately, the Aldi near me likes to carry this far more than the merlot and shiraz. Either that or it sucks so bad that it’s all that’s left by the time I get there. Either way, gack, as Katrina would say.

The label claims medium to full bodied. It’s weak- lame sauce bodied is what it is. It just does not pack a punch, a wallop, or a hanging chad. Our usual Aldi red wine blend is here in attendance- black cherry, blackberry, and toasted oak. Or imagine a rotten coconut in the middle of a basket of wilting, rotting berries with the worms crawling out. Put it in a bottle and that’s what this is. What taste there is isn’t impressive. 

The label- that sneaky owl looks like he’s up to no good. Maybe because he knows what’s in the bottle you’re about to purchase. I would say if you’re brave enough to try this, try it with burgers or meat dishes(meatloaf, etc). If you’re not, I’m sure it makes a fine chemcial base to wash your fine china with(as stated earlier).

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!
