Canyon Oaks, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2010
$4.99 (liquor store), Cork, California
The back of the bottle says:"The Canyon Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon offers fresh fruit aromas of cassis, mint and chocolate. Dense flavors of black fruit and blueberry explode on the palate. Supple tannins lead to a long, smooth, lingering finish."
Who the heck writes the back of wine bottles? Seriously, where do they come up with this stuff?? There are a lot of sexual innuendos in this one and I feel a little uncomfortable reading it. I mean, there is explode, supple, long, smooth, and finish all in one place. I don't like it one bit.
And I did not really like the taste of this wine either. I definitely did not taste any blueberries, mint or chocolate. All I tasted was a cheap wine that reminded me of what I drank when Jeff's frat threw their monthly Wine Night to get the girls all liquored up on cheap wine.
I don't recommend this wine unless you are 20 and attending a wine social at your local college's fraternity. I guess I got what i paid for this time.
