Thirsty Thursdays: Shadow Ridge California Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

meh.  that’s all i can say for this one.  i didn’t love it.  i might feel differently if i were eating steak or a rich pasta with it.  but i just wanted to sip on something before dinner and this was…meh.  the wine is light in texture, a bit acidic and has notes of chocolate, blackberries, etc… but i just don’t love it.

i got this bottle for free for my 30th birthday (i stayed at the shadow ridge in palm desert) and was REALLY excited to try it.  but…*shrug *  i can’t say much.  they also gave me a white bottle that i’ll review later.  but if it’s anything like this one… it’ll be disappointing.

  1. I felt exactly the same about my bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon! I had a glass tonight, but found it a little too acidic, so liberally poured the wine into my Moroccan ratatouille!
