Meridian 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon (California)
Oscar night and I needed a wine that would allow me to watch the show and not concentrate on the wine. I find myself in Florida at a Publix grocery store looking in the wine section (hey Ontario, imagine looking for wine in the grocery store) … I find a bottle of Meridian 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon – a wine I had tried back in Toronto at a Foster’s tasting, I knew the wine, and it was cheap here in FLA ($6.99). Nose full of black fruit, chocolate and black pepper, with a palate of black pepper, cassis and dark cocoa … I enjoyed the wine and, as I do every year, I enjoyed the show – after all I’m not just a wine buff, I’m a movie buff too.
