    date night with the wife with dinner at Buca di Beppo. Interested in trying one of their dishes with the house Cabernet Sauvignon. Lets see if it really has notes of currant, raspberry, blackberry and vanilla.

    Review- 2006 Mirassou Cabernet Sauvignon 

    This wine, which can be found in all corners of any grocery store it seems and is a ho-hum symphony of complacency and disappointment. Cheap, basic and just lacking any character. I even attempted to decant overnight with no tangible results in the chemistry of this sleeping giant. Mirassou has to be as common as Yellow Tail in some places and I find it as average if not more appallingly so. Black cherries, mild notes of dark chocolate and a rancid licorice aftertaste make this not worth the price tag. If you buy it, drink it with a meal to help mask the taste that will leave you completely uninspired to drink any more of it.

    Personal Palate Score- 1.2 out of 5
    $3.99 @ Fresh & Easy Marketplace
    13.5% ABV

    Hump day! What are you drinking tonight and is it with anyone special to you?

    Me, I’m drinking with my wife and it’ll be a bottle of The Harbor Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 from Southeast Australia. Priced @ $8 from Fresh & Easy Marketplace.

    Review- Gnarly Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 

    So have you ever wondered what a bottle of wine would taste like if instead of oak barrels, they used the wood of a cedar tree? This wine is it! I felt like I was drinking an actual cedar tree. I’m down with cedar, especially with this wine as it was $8.99 @ Total Wine & More. Also had mocha, black cherries and a pleasantly long finish that lingered for the length of a good commercial break on tv. I also got hints of spicy pepperoni, like you sometimes find on pizza which was rather intriguing and unexpected. For the price, this common bottle of wine really surprised me as I was thinking when I was buying it “eh, even if it’s bad it’s cheaper than some other offerings.” So if you are looking for a good gameday wine that goes well with snacks and cheese (you Packer fans out there) this wine is for you!

    Personal Palate Score- 4.2 out of 5
