in pursuit of the juiciest wine: day eighty-eight (Newton Cabernet Sauvignon 2008)

I’m in Dixfield, ME, “The Only One,” watching Inception for the forth or fifth time and drinking Newton Cabernet Sauvignon 2008. I started drinking it out of a port glass.

Port Glass

Newton Cabernet Sauvignon 2008The opening of the mouth is small. When I smell the Newton it smells of a forest in the Pacific Northwest. A mushroomy forest. The nose is dark and dank. And it tastes about the same. I don’t really care for the nose and the taste is okay.

So I go to the cupboard and get a small mason jar to pour the wine into. Oh, it opens up like a dream within a dream. The nose now has perfume and vanilla.

The flavor doesn’t last long in the mouth. I pick up a sharp jaminess. I think there are some raspberries and coffee. The finish is dark and spicy.

But what I like is how different the wine is based on the size of the mouth of the glass. It’s like two different wines. We all know that different wines are supposed to be drunk out of a a glass with a certain shape and size, but who really thought it mattered that much? Well, this time it did.

So drink the Newton Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 out of a big mouthed glass and let it breathe for at least an hour. It’s pretty good. 89 points.

Next entry I’m going to use a different grading system, because this point system is unnecessary.//
