in pursuit of the juiciest wine: day forty

Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon 2007Yay! It’s day forty of the tour. To celebrate I will do another mini tour — a Californian Cabernet Sauvignon tour. I got some really good ones and some I will find about. One of the ones I will find out about is Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 from Napa Valley.

I just poured a glass, and as it flowed into the wine glass, I thought, “What a brilliant ruby color.” Plus, it’s about 95% opaque, so things are looking good. Ha.

On the nose are wild mushrooms, a steak Montreal, some sour cherries, earthiness, and muskiness.

This wine wants to be juicy but the pepper and this sizzling sensation are getting in the way. I also get tart cherries.

It’s also thinner than I thought. I’m starting to think I should rename this overall tour — In Pursuit of the Juiciest and Big Bodied Wine Tour.

Anyway, this isn’t a $14 wine, as it is marked. It’s $9 or $10. I give it 87 points.

Day 40 wasn’t so great. Sigh. However, there are definitely some good Cabernet Sauvignons coming up.//
