[ yellow tail ] Reserve Cabernet Sauvigon.
By “Reserve” they mean it cost $8.99 instead of $7.99 so, you know, high rollers only.
While I’m not convinced that the extra dollar isn’t just spent on the fancy-pants label, this Cabernet Sauvignon isn’t bad. It’s definitely full-bodied with some upper-cut to the upper palate, gets ya with ole one-two if you know what I mean.
[ yellow tail ] reds are typically in your face, lacking volume control and the finesse of an indoor voice. It doesn’t make them bad, it just makes them bold.
Very woody with loud dark fruit. The label reads “… and a hint of mint”. Apparently someone’s been chewing some super funky gum if they think this wine possesses a hint of mint which, clearly, it does not. But even if it did, “I like this wine because it’s refreshingly minty”, said no one ever.
14% alcohol and a touch of red wine headache.
Certainly not for sissies. Proceed with caution.
