I don’t typically write about Wine. Do I like wine? Yes, I do. At heart though, I’ll always be a beer man. Typically, I don’t find wine as interesting. This Cab from Arrow Creek is an interesting one though. Definitely one worth seeking out if you enjoy dry reds. I could see myself drinking this with enthusiasm in the winter time to warm up. However, I cannot see myself saying no to this on a summer evening with a good book nearby.
I love the leather and oak aroma that’s present after the wine breathes for a minute or two. I also get a whiff of beef jerky too. This wine is blueberry forward; quite jammy for a cab. It is surprisingly sweet for a Cab. After the berries comes a tartness that balances out the wine. I prefer something a little more oak forward. The lingering finish is one of raspberries.
Again, this is not something I would be drinking on a regular basis. However, this is a fine wine for those who enjoy sweet and tart flavors.
