You just can’t go wrong with Cain. (Actually, you can’t go wrong with most any wine from Napa in 2005 or 2006.) Cain opens slow, but once it opens it is very smooth and sweet. Online $43.95.
Toxic’s comment reminded me its been a while since my last wine review. Here’s one sponsored by Chie Mihara, my new obsession. (See previous post) I’m considering adding a section to my site for shoe reviews, whatcha think?
Indecisive. I know, how odd. For some reason I remember liking the wine more the last time I had it. It’s pretty woody and, I hate to say it, just okay. I have another bottle, perhaps I’ll like the next better. In-store, $35.99.
If you are a Cabernet Sauvignon fan you can pretty much pick up any vintage from 2005 Napa and be sure it’s going to be good. Here’s a 2006 from Oakville that I’m enjoying tonight. I can’t find the price, but I’m sure it’s under $40.00.
Please ignore the water spots on the glasses – air dried due to momentary lack of a towel – and it’s making me mentally ill just looking at the picture.
I’m a cab girl, I can’t help it. I love the color and the boldness. I used to be a pinot girl, but now I can only drink a pinot if it’s a really good pinot. I’ve loved Chappellet varieties for a while and I love the deep lasting impressions this cabernet brings, it is so rich you can smell it all the way across the room. Makes me want a glass right now. Priced around $45.00.
Our friends, Michelle and Phillip, brought this wine to share with us during a recent visit. And. Oh. My. God. If you ever want to make it to 4th base on the first date – this is the wine you need. It’s a naughty, smooth, deep, bold and complex.
I can’t thank our friends enough for turning us onto this wine or for their generosity – at $98.00 a bottle, it is worth every penny. They brought three fabulous bottles of wine, so look for the other two reviews soon.
