The Show 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (California)
This wine is so "sweet" ... not sweet as in lots of sugar, but sweet as in "oh so delicious". As much as I liked the 2006 version the 2007 version is even better. The nose on this Show reels you in with sweet fruit smells of blackberry, plum, ripe cherries, a hint of raspberry (that comes more into the fore the longer it is onpened) and all wrapped in a robe of chocolate. All that pales in comparison to the flavours your mouth is about to receive. Everything above follows on the tongue, but it's delivered in such a smooth manner that the mouth screams for more with each sip. The flavours are lead by the juiciness of blackberry and black cherry and a touch of chocolate on the finish ... now here's the kicker, this wine is not available in Ontario so I pick my bottles up in the good old U.S. of A, where you can find it on sale for about ten-bucks - what a steal.
