Two wine posts in one night! And, actually, this is my third wine post for the day, since 48 happened shortly after midnight and 49 just happened recently. I’m on a roll.
Well, this is the fiftieth in the pursuit of the juiciest wine. Number fifty only deserves the best, so Hall Cabernet Sauvignon 2006. In addition, it continues the Californian Cabernet Sauvignon extended mini tour.
This is one of the best wines I’ve had in a long time. I already know this will be like 94 points or so.
This smells denser and tarter than I remember. It probably needs a little more time to open up. So, let’s wait a while. It’s only been about 30 minutes already, and I remember it needing time.
Now I get black licorice on the nose as well as currants and plums. The nose is not the best of the wine, which is odd for me because the nose is usually my favorite part.
It’s got a big body and it’s a bit dry. This probably still needs more time to open.
Tick tick tick . . . tick tick tick . . . tick tick tick.
It’s been about two hours now. The nose has loosened up to some cherries and juicier plums. There’s also a slightly peppery finish.
This isn’t as good as the last time I had it, but it’s still good. This time I’m only giving it 90 points.//
