So I have a pretty interesting wine this month for you all, it fits with the theme at this time of year. I’m also showing a little love to California this month to support all that is happening (you know the fires that wiped out a bunch of wineries). Also on a more cheery note, happy All Hollows Eve!
Carnivor Cabernet Sauvignon $17.95
This wine has a suuuper deep dark purple colour, its almost opaque! (at least in my lighting it is). The aromas coming from this wine are beautifully robust and complex with notes of mocha, blackberry, toasted oak, cassis, blueberry, and vanilla. It’s a dry wine with rich notes similar to the nose, and a full well rounded body. The wine has a great balance of acidity and bitterness that makes it feel very smooth. You can pair this wine with all kinds of food like a burger, grilled pork, or is you are inclined, a cigar!
