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.
Hello, my Lovely. Have I ever thanked you for helping me get over my fear of ducks? I love ducks, yes I do – and do I ever love a pair of ducks. This wine is so dark, balanced and smooth – I love it like I birthed it. $48 online. (Just wait until it’s not 5 million degrees outside to order – trust me on this one.)
Tomorrow I’ll announce the Yurbuds winner and announce the next FREE gift!
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’ve been on a Merlot kick the past few days, and this is one on the nicer Merlots I’ve had in a while. I wish I had some fancy pants terms like “exhibits loads of black cherries, currants, chocolate, mocha, and caramel”, but I don’t. I just like it and you will too. I believe the 2005 vintage is out of stock, but I hear the 2006 is just as good. Around $35.00.
