in pursuit of the juiciest wine: day forty-five

Duck Hunt

Duck Exceptions

I’m officially no longer a vegetarian. I just didn’t have the cooking imagination for it, but I did stumble upon a few good meals.

I am now a pescetarian with duck exceptions. Tonight, I will be finishing off the last of the shrimp with garlic sauce and egg roll that I ordered last night.

While I eat that I will have Sterling Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 made with organic grapes. This wine also continues the Californian Cabernet Sauvignon mini tour as this wine is from Mendocino, California.

Sterling Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2007Organic foods tend to have more flavor than non-organic foods and whole lot less chemicals. Here’s hoping the same is true of organic grapes.

This wine has a tall meniscus above its dark ruby color. There’s pepper on the nose, caramel plums, and smoke.

It has a tart finish that gives me goose bumps. Or was it all of the alcohol?

The texture is kinda leathery. It tastes okay, but nothing stands out.

It’s normally $15, which is overpriced. I got it on sale for $9, which is okay, but it should probably be $8.

Still, I’ll give it 87 points. I have had 86 point wines, and this is better than 86.

It needs food to help the finish.

Will I get this again? No.//
