A bold 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with dark fruits and cherry flavors. The color is a nice rich plum, I’m big on color and I’m in love with the label. Screws. 89 points. $19.99.
We all need to be a little bit evil, right? And here’s proof that good wine doesn’t have to be evilly priced: $9.99. Buy a dozen and get it for $8.99. Evil is 100% Cabernet from 10 to 30 year old vines. Grapes are from three distinctly different regions: 38% McLaren Vale, 37% Barossa, 25% Pyrenees. I don’t know where any of those places are, but our neighbor has a Great Pyrenees dog that likes to toy with Cherry Berry by pretending to herd goats that are out of her reach. Besides the reasonable price, I love the label and screw top. Screw tops rule, wine makers – get with the program. 89 points. No, I’ll give it 90 since it screws.
A classic and another one of my buttery favorites. Varietal composition: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc.
Brilliant. Deep. Ruby. Wonderful. If you order it in a restaurant it’s ridiculously priced around $120.00 or so, but you can get it online or at a nice liquor store for around $39.99. Have I mentioned how much I hate the triple mark up? Another good reason to move to Australia. Where the wine is always free. And people eat kangaroos.
Vacation report coming up soon, I promise.
