#newwinethisweek Week 32 – Californian Cabernet Sauvignon #NWTW on tour!
It looks like the first week of #newwinethisweek on tour has been a big hit, with Californian Chardonnay making a move towards the top of the #newwinethiseeek charts. This week we’re staying in California and going for something red. I though about Pinot, and wanted to go for Pinot, but its just not that easy to get hold of in the UK; so were going for Cabernet Sauvignon this week (we did Zin back in Week 16).
I’m not going to repeat myself too much as I wrote a lullaby to Californian Cab earlier this week; but seriously you lot, give it a go and see how elegant and brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon from California can be. It will also be interesting to see how Cali Cab fares against Aussie Coonawarra Cab, which we did back in week 14 and is the best performing red wine so far!
Here’s the link to my recent article on Cali Cab, and a few recommendations from the UK – it may cost a few quid more than usual, but seriously, it will be worth it…
And if you really fancy spoiling yourself (Mr Stevens go for the real thing!)
Go wild and let us know your thoughts… And be a bit Californian and say something nice this week!
PS. Hemmingway once said its best to write drunk and edit sober… I was battered when I wrote this last night after a game of Tasting Room-Tag in Healdburg!
