Nice bouquet. Not bitter at end.

For $7 it's good. 4 Star Gold Orange County Fair
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.
