in pursuit of the juiciest wine: day sixty-seven (Sean Minor Cabernet Sauvignon 2007)

FigI’ve been eating figs lately, and they are so delicious. Then I had some Sun-Maid Mission figs from a resealable bag. They weren’t very good. They tasted like raisins. Then I realized a real fig probably tastes exactly what the galaxy tastes like. The insides of a fig look just like a galaxy. A really sexual galaxy. Oh, I wish I were a god so I could take a bite of the galaxy.

Sean Minor Four Bears Cabernet Sauvignon 2007I’ve been hearing similar remarks about Sean Minor Four Bears Winery wines, especially the Pinot Noirs. Mahan’s didn’t have any of their Pinot Noirs, so I am going to try Sean Minor Four Bears Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 instead.

I don’t smell any figs, but that’s okay. It smells deep and musty. It smells of cassis. I also pick up a salty meat, like bacon. I also get some dark berries to match its dark purple color, which is mostly opaque.

This is sour on the palate. It tastes like there is Cab France in it. Let me go see if I can find what the grapes are.

Composition: 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot. (http://www.4bearswinery.com/wines/detail/2007-cabernet-sauvignon-napa-valley)

That’s some strong Cab Franc. It’s a good Cab Franc, from what I know of Cab Francs, but I don’t like Cab Franc. Yeck. Other than the Cab Franc, this is a good wine. I like the Merlot that’s in it.

After a while, the Cab Franc mellows. And this becomes enjoyable to me.

I give this 88 points. If there were no Cab Franc, then 89. If you like Cab Franc, then this might also be an 89.

It’s about two hours later, and this wine is so much better. My girlfriend says it would go good with ham and brown sugar. I agree. In fact there might be some brown sugar in here.

And now I leave you with some awesomeness.
