The Show 2007 Cabernet Sauvugnon California

In Uncategorized on April 14, 2010 at 2:00 am
Wine starts very fruity, aromatic, light and acidic with velvety tannins to finish.

Although above average at start, lacks depth and continuity. The journey ends too soon, and the wine goes out of its way to let you know that it has ended.

The wine will shine next to a heavy and very well seasoned meat (like lamb), to initially cut in the broad, sometimes overburdening oily texture of the meat,  but quickly get out of the way of the complex and  seasoned meat. Garlic and oil will pair well. No dry meat. No aged cheese as the sharpness will compete and will give you stomach ulcers.

Overall, although above average at start, the wine lacks depth and continuity. The journey is too short, and the wine lets you know that it has ended. Colorful yet very flat.

Final Verdict: No repeat.

Reason: Need smoother, silkier finish with Oakier finish. Need more depth.
