Who Stepped on the Cat?

Rosemont Estate, 1996 Show Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from the Coonawarra — yes, an Australian Cabernet Sabottle_show_res_cab_sauv_imugivnon, not a Syrah, not a blend – it’s the real juicy deal.  This wine is big — hits hard and takes names.  A true beauty in her day, who matured into large complexity, though misses some of its jazzy vivaciousness.  Mint and hard acid, red currant with a spark of coffee.  More smooth than curvy, more course but not uneven. If this wine were a dog it would step on the cat’s tail.  Just because it can.  And it did.  Its feet are bigger.

  1. Hey Josh
    Thanks for the love. I very much appreciate it and will add you to the blog roll I’m starting today. How about it!

  2. I stumbled upon your blog and I have to say I love the short well written blurbs about each product. Your mentions seem timely and I love the ACDC reference in the Pinot Noir post! I’m adding you to my blog roll.
