Jade Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon—$10 at Green’s. At first sip it was a bit stand-offish. Some wines are just like that, shy at first. I left it alone a bit (well, 30 minutes, I was thirsty). It was worth the wait. Velvety and layered without being overpowering (like so many California Cabs can be)…I tasted new things in every sip: cedar, mint, spice, dark, dark berry. Oh this is a happy wine! Honestly… TEN BUCKS…I only spent TEN BUCKS. What’s not to be happy about?
This is absolutely a great wine to serve at all those big holiday dinners you’ll be having, to give as a hostess gift or to sip by the fire. I seriously considered not sharing this deal of the century with anyone, but it is the holidays and Santa is watching. Enjoy!
