Happy Hump Day! I FINALLY remembered my wine for Wednesday. I know, you’re all so excited, right? Ha. There is wine, but there is still no camera. So, as soon as I can connect my camera to my computer, I’ll update with a label pic. Until then, you’ll just have to deal (I’ve spoken one too many “I’m sorry” ‘s already this week, so…I’m being blunt, and I’m not sorry. But, really, I am ).
Today’s delicious wine:
Type: Cabernet Sauvignon
Dustin and I are big fans of Bogle’s 2007 Merlot and Cabernet. BIG fans. So, unable to find a 2007, we opted for the 2009, and a Cabernet rather than a Merlot. We were not impressed. The high alcohol content didn’t match the medium/light-bodied feel. The wine was overly acidic and tasted overwhelmingly of plum.
First thoughts: vinegary and tart. Umm…I think I’ll take another sip.
Lacking mouthfeel. Light to medium body. Unexpected, in a not-so-good way.
Final thoughts: Not a great wine. Next time, I’ll spend the extra on a 2007 if it’s available. If not, I’ll opt for a different wine.
Keep in mind, this is the 2009 Cabernet, not the Merlot. I’ve had the ’09 Merlot and have only good memories. Maybe I dived into that bottle a little too much to remember its true qualities… that’s another wine for another Wednesday.
A sneak peak into next week: A Wonderful White…
Until then, godetevi il vostro vino!
