in pursuit of the juiciest wine: day fifty-three

It’s the first Sunday of NFL football, and I’m realizing I don’t have a handle of the teams yet. Last year, I was on. This year, eh. Anyway. Wine.

Beringer Founder's Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2006The California Cabernet Sauvignon extended mini tour continues with Beringer Founder’s Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2006. This is different from the Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon from day fifty-one. This one is the Founder’s Estate for $8 on sale, and the other is Knight’s Valley for, I think, $14 on sale. Hopefully, the Founders Estate is comparable and hopefully better.

The Founder’s Estate is much darker than the Knights Valley. It’s also fruitier on the nose and softer, too. My girlfriend and I both get mushrooms. I also get a hint of vanilla, green grapes, and pepper. Do I get basil, too?

I get cherries on the palate. There is a sour finish that’s a bit acidic, too.

This would complement a pizza fairly well, especially a frozen pizza.

In the end, there’s nothing special about this wine.

Here’s my comparative wine score: 87. It tastes as good as many 87 cabs I’ve had. For the same price though, you can get the Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon and have a more enjoyable experience.//
