You know the old adage: don’t judge a book by it’s cover. Well, here was a bit of a surprise for me.
Vineyard: Dancing Bull
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Notes: I like a good cab – especially when it’s cold outside. Maybe that’s because I enjoy pairing a hearty cabernet sauvignon with the comfort foods I so often crave in the midst of winter. But don’t make assumptions about this wine based on it’s label. This is no stereotypical heavy, muscular cab. Instead, in this offering from Dancing Bull wines I found a very pleasant medium-bodied red wine with loads of plum and dark cherry fruit on the tongue. For me, it also provided plenty of oak and warm spice hints with very light tannins which give it a quick finish. If you’re looking for a red to drink now rather than to hold and cellar, this one is definitely a “drink now” selection in my book.
