Bone Dry Red Cabernet(5 out of 5)

Standard

ImageFelicia found this doozy at Dominick’s. As usual, it was a surprise. As usual, the label caught her eye. It is a gorgeous label. That’s before we saw the 14.% alcohol level, so we knew it was going to make us wineblind(bad change-up on an Ozzy classic). The wine has a paper label that you have to remove to get to the wine itself. I think we let it breathe for a hour or so. It has a rich aroma when you smell it. Meaning- you’re in for it. But oh, it’s so good(sorry, Mr. Food, I am mimicking you as I write this). 

This wine has lush berry, cherry, some chocolate notes, and a whole lotta spice. It is a dry wine, but it is a strong wine, do not be fooled by the pretty skull on the label. It’s oaky, oaky, oaky, but in the context of this wine, it’s a perfect balance. One glass and you are questioning life, love, and the existence of gluten-free crackers. Two and you’re likely offering to mow your neighbor’s lawn topless(not in my case, I’d probably offer someone money to blow up her over-blown ceramic and lawn statue cemetery instead). It’s an extremely rich cabernet, and probably would be best accompanied by a Porterhouse steak or a rack of ribs. This would not work well, with, say, tuna fish or salmon(my usual fares as of late). It is excellent with Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel bars(another thing to blame the lovely Felicia for). Definitely my second favorite cab of the month, behind Beringer, which had me such a wreck from one glass that I completely forgot what the fuck I was supposed to be making for dinner. 

Try it, buy it, recommend it, send it, drink it, don’t rethink it!

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!
