Submission Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

California, United States
20 days ago

Sharon scored this wine: 88/100

Very aromatic aromas of chocolate, vanilla and tobacco. Off-dry and flavours of cocoa, vanilla and cigar. This isn't a cab sauv you'd pair with steak. Pair with dessert! I enjoyed with 2-bite brownies and raspberries! Delish! If you love Apothic, you'll love this one! Decent price at $17. Tasted November 19, 2018

The Barry Brothers

Jim Barry Wines The Barry Brothers Cabernet Shiraz 2016

Clare Valley, Australia
20 days ago

Sharon scored this wine: 88/100

Aromas of blackberry and black plum with a hint of vanilla. Medium-bodied with cedar, blackberry and pepper. Well balanced use of oak but a short finish. Pair with cheeses or sip on its own. Tasted November 19, 2018.

Sharon scored this wine: 87/100

Aromas of green pepper, dried herbs and hint of cherry. Light for a cab sauv with flavours of blackberry, cherry and chalk. Normally wouldn't pair a cab sauv with poultry, but this one is light enough to bring to your next Thanksgiving dinner or pair with herbed roast chicken (think rosemary, dried basil, oregano). Would please many palettes as is lighter for your pinot noir lover, but has flavours to please the cab sauv lover. Also pairs well with hard cheese like emmental. Tasted November 19, 2018.

Memorable Wine

Shiraz or CabSauv from Black Opal Winery. Can't get the wine in Ontario, but my aunt always set a bottle aside for me when I'd come visit her! Great memories!

First Wine

Probably a sip of my mom's sauvignon blanc when I was in my late teens.

Unusual Wine Experience

A wine tasting class that paired different wines with potato chips.

Current Fav Wine

I'm branching out from my usual CabSauv and Shiraz and exploring Zinfandel and CabMerlot wines.
