I suppose I should’ve know better but I decided to live cheap and dangerously.
This is Cabernet Sauvignon from yellow tail.
The price: $6.59.
That means no Mircale Gro for the grapes.
Now, to be honest, it’s not terrible, not pond water by any means, and it does start to taste better by the 2nd glass.
That first glass though.. it punches you in the throat on the way down which means it’s not very smooth and I figured out that this characteristic is what determines whether or not I like the wine.
It’s 13% alcohol so after the first glass, with the throat numb anyway, the punch is nearly painless.
While my review of this wine could double as zen wisdom for surviving a bar fight, it’s not all bad. If expendable income is tight and this is what you brought home to have with dinner, drink it fast, the pain is short lived.
