in pursuit of the juiciest wine: day forty-one

Dave's Gourmet Red Heirloom Organic Pasta SauceIt’s day two of the Californian Cabernet Sauvignon mini tour, and tonight I’m a bachelor. The girlfriend is out for the night, so the whole bottle is mine.

Tonight for dinner I’m making mushroom pierogies with Dave’s Gourmet Red Heirloom Organic Pasta Sauce. The sauce is so amazing. It might be the best sauce I’ve ever had from a jar. Oh, and I’ll have some Italian pane bread with butter as well. It should be a good meal.

I’m thinking of watching Titanic, too.

Joel Gott Cabernet Sauvignon 815 2008Tonight’s Californian Cabernet Sauvignon is Joel Gott Cabernet Sauvignon 815 2008  from St. Helena in Napa County.

To the wine. Allons-y.

This one has a dark ruby color with a bright purple meniscus. It smells smooth an plummy. I also get cherry and strawberry and hints of cantaloupe and cedar or oak  or something woody.

To the tasting!

A slight bit of pepper with plums and a touch of green apples. And it’s dry. I wish the body were a little bigger, but it’s okay.

On the finish are strawberries and peppers and a bit of juiciness.

Overall, it’s a fine and pleasant wine, and I’m sure it will go well with the mushrooms and sauce.

A $14 price seems okay for this wine, which I give 89 points. It wins me on the front of the tongue and the finish.//
