So you say you miss some of your heavier weight reds throughout this particularly warm summer? Are you getting a bit white wine worn? You say you love crisp, citrusy and refreshing but enough already? Ok then, ‘cause you’re not alone. Go ahead and think ripe, rich, and red even if it is 85 degrees outside. Be a rebel!
We have the perfect wine for you. Boxhead 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bit of a rebel itself due to the fact that this Australian Cab is quite different from your typical California variety. This Cab will remind you of a Shiraz, but it has some significant differences as well. There is a lovely aroma of fresh baked blueberry pie and a smidgen of clove. Then you take a sip and dark berries burst in your mouth followed by more Christmas spice and a tart finish of strawberry rhubarb.
This is a wonderful surprise for $9.99. Pair this wine with sausage and mushroom pizza. So be a rebel, eat pizza and drink Australian Cab when it’s 85 degrees!
