The Show 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon wine review by (PB)
This wine is made from sourced California grapes and is produced by the same folks who did such a decent job with the "Three Thieves" line of box wines.
The label is hokey but the wine is pretty good. On the pour it is a fine purple with some depth and has varietal aromas of green pepper and light fruit. It needs to be breathed.
With 15 minutes, the gentle bouquet turns into a full blown power house of Cabernet aromas with a touch of leather.
In the mouth it tastes a bit manufactured but it is a good example of the grape with a sweeter palate in the popular style with dark berries and chocolate with simple tannins and a powdery texture. It finishes with plenty of smoky oak.
Somewhat predictable but at the $15 price point it holds its own. All in all not bad and down right tasty. So, raise a glass!
