Jets Uncorked Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
The New York Jets have teamed-up with renowned Napa Valley winemaker Marco DiGiulio to create a sophisticated, limited-edition Cabernet Sauvignon. This vintage offers lush, ripe flavors of red cherries, currants and berries, framed by supple tannins, and just enough oak to add complexity without obscuring the purity of the fruit. The long spicy finish is an invitation for another sip.
Ahh: the "Uncorked" label from those famous winemakers: The New Jersey Jets, has FINALLY made its way to my table. FINALLY I get to have a sample of what this marketing exploit has to say. Culled from what was good from Girard Winery in the Napa Valley, and produced by winemaker Marco Digiulio in the vintage of 2008- this is a wine to remember for how quickly it should be forgotten. The nose, itself, is FINE. Lots of plum and cherry and other pleasant and "fanciful things". Berries, stems, root vegetables, and other such aromatics are pleasantly present. The problems start when the wine begins the process of trying to get into your mouth. Which, may I add, is a VERY awkward and bracing circumstance. The attack of this Cabernet is just that: an assault on your mouth. You may THINK that you're at the beginning of a "wine experience", but in reality you are nothing less, and nothing more, than the victim of a cruel and heartless marketing ploy. It's kinda like thinking, back in the day, that KISS was actually music, rather than New York privileged bohunks with little better to do than to exploit a crevace in the pre-paved "ROCK" industry. The ONLY reason I digress is to try to FORGET what the rest of this "wine experience" actually was. My teeth, my gums, and the back of my throat refuse to forgive me for what I have put them through. Jets fans- do NOT let this wine stand for you, for it is much too abrasive, and FAR rougher than what you face this January, in Pittsburgh. ...Do you have any IDEA how many cases of Iron City you can buy for the cost of ONE FREAKING BOTTLE of this stuff? GET THE BEER! TRUST ME- GET THE BEER!
