Hope can be a dangerous thing, perhaps even more so when imbibed in liquid form. But this Cabernet Sauvignon won't disappoint, so you might want to throw a few coins into a wishing well while you're at it.
Sometimes more is less, so let me launch right into this weeks wine review.
A California wine that is cautiously optimistic. I like it!
Tasting notes: Plum, Spice, Oak
Pair with: Steak or hearty pasta
Cost: $19.95 CDN
Perks: This wine perfectly encapsulates that mid-winter angst where everyone is just about to lose it on each other until they spot that ruby-red bottle gleaming like a last chance.
Cons: Red wine is notorious for aggravating heartburn. I know this because I'm an old fart at heart (no pun intended) and pop antacids like they are candy.
Overall Glossless Rating (based on totally unscientific and arbitrary values): 8.5/10
