I’m beginning to think the Monkey has a key to my house, how else can I explain finding a bottle of V Norte Estate Bottled Cab on my computer desk last week? Kind of freaky, but hey I'm not complaining.
So I did my normal 1st pour of about ½ glass, excellent color, deep purple (not the band) color, held it up to the light and can’t see through A good sign for me, nice aroma, berries & Oak (no Vanilla that good) did little swirl and had decent legs. 1st sip was a little sour/bitter, decided to let it sit for a while. Went back after an hour and seemed to mellow, this is a dry wine, which I like. Found this to be a very nice Cab. Paired with a Filet, & sugar snap peas and went drank well.
All and all I like this wine, wasn’t much on the net on this wine, one place rated it an 85, for me closer to 89 points. What would I compare this wine too? A little better than Slingshot but not quite Sempre Vive.
Well got to go scored tickets to Game 2 of Lord Stanley’s Cup, (nephew works for the Kings, nice huh?) Heading to the Staples Center, and going to hit up the Pantry for lunch then “the Yard House for a brew or two.
GO KINGS GO (sorry N.Y. wooters)
