Little Black Dress 2007

Member Review by 40somethinglife:

After trying the Little Black Dress Pinot Noir the other night, I wanted my friend to also try it. I sent her to our local store that has a very nice selection of reasonably priced wines for another bottle. Unfortunately, they were all out but they did have a Cabernet, which I told my friend to buy it immediately. It was only $11 (very much in keeping with my budget right now) and I was excited to try another wine from the Little Black Dress selection!! Apparently, Little Black Dress is geared towards the female palate. Interesting right? Do we have a different palate to men? I can understand the label – which is playful and girlie, but not the palate. I believe there has been research done on this and it has been found, but not proven, that women do have a more sensitive palate. Maybe that makes us better wine tasters. I do know I am good wine taster, okay fine... I am a good drinker! So, my sensitive palate tried the Cabernet. The aroma of this wine is rich with fruits of dark cherry and blackberry with a suggestion of bitter, spiced chocolate. On the palate it is very smooth and bold with a taste of mild burnt toast. A teasing wine, full of fruit flavors. The Cab does not linger and the finish is quick and fast, which of course asks you to sip more – which I happily did. I would like to say I enjoyed this fun wine with roasted duck breast, which I can imagine it would be perfect with, however, we enjoyed our Cab with Chinese takeout. It was still rather nice. I think my preference is with the Pinot Noir but I would definitely drink this casual, agreeable wine again… alone or with friends.

Aromas of cherry and berry fruit notes complimented by lightly toasted oak and vanilla. This wine is smooth and rich in color and in mouth feel with hints of blackber ry, blueberr y and some cher ry with sweet oak spice. It is lush and supple with a fruit forward flavorful finish.
