in pursuit of the juiciest wine: day eighty (Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Ivory Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2009)

Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Ivory Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2009Jets are down 7-0 and have received two favorable calls and are at the Steeelers 43. I have received a bottle of Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Ivory Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2009. Hm. It’s diamond and ivory. It must be really good (wink wink).

Gay knocks down Sanchez’s pass, but a false start.

. . .

By the way football and wine do go together and the Steelers are at mid-field.

I need to get to this wine and watch some football, so this will be a quick tasting.

The wine is very dark, like the Steelers jerseys. Well, not that dark, but dark as a Cabernet Sauvignon should be. I like the nose. Dark cherries and cola and some apples.

It’s quite dry. It would be jammy if not for the dryness. It’s quite fruity with strawberries and melon? My girlfriend gets something completely different. She gets sizzling duck fat or bacon on the nose and taste. I’m not getting it, but I wish I did. My girlfriend’s nose and palate are awesome, too. But, alas, quite divergent tastes here.

The dryness lingers on the finish . . . and the Jets just picked off Roethlisberger.

More sips and sniffs, and I can’t faintly pick up some salty meat or something salty, but it’s distance and faint.

Anyway, we both agree that it’s average. Columbia Crest’s Cabernet Sauvignon for $2 less is more tasty and interest. Columbia Crest’s is an 89, so I’ll say this $11 bottle of Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Ivory Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 is an 88.

Steelers are now up 10-0.

Steelers are like Columbia Crest Cabernet Sauvignon and the Jets are like Francis Coppola Diamond Collection Ivory Label Cabernet Sauvignon 2009. One’s for real and the other is not.

I hope I didn’t just  jinx the Steelers.//
