Santa Rita 120 Cab

100_1445

Here you go, folks.  A reasonably priced Cabernet Sauvignon.

This is one of those small bottles of wine that World Market has for sale all over their store.  Be careful.  These things are dangerous!  You can pick up one or two or ten of these in no time!  My hubby got it in his Christmas stocking from my mom!  Fun, hu?!

Cabernet Sauvignon is a widely known red wine variety.  It is apparently grown in almost every wine-producing country of the world.  I’ve read about it here and there, mostly through Wine Spectator Magazine and Wine for Dummies.  I think these vines are pretty easy to grow, in that they are pretty hearty.

I’ve always felt Cab’s to be really full-bodied and sometimes, frankly, just too much.  I like them best with a really great steak.  But lately, thanks to this cute little bottle of Santa Rita 120 Cab, I’ve just enjoyed it  for no other reason than to enjoy it.  This wine was very smooth, yet rich and dense.  It didn’t have too much going on in the tastes, but enough to peak my interest in wanting more.  That seems to be just the right amount of ‘going on’ for me when I’m wanting to enjoy a relaxing glass of wine.

You should visit the Cab Wiki Page and check out the grapes.  Don’t they look just delicious?!

Do you drink wine?  What kinds of wine do you like?
