Sister's Run 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (Australia)
Wine on the road tastes better than the same wine at home. It's a funny little particularity that we wine travellers find out the hard way. That great tasting white is spectacular under the Tuscan sun, but in the heat and humidity of Ontario lacks luster. I know I was playing with fire when I brought back a bottle of Sister's Run Cab from my whirlwind Alberta weekend. Thankfully, everything turned out fine - the fruit, the finesse and even the chocolate notes all came through loud and clear - a delicious bottle of easy to drinking Cabernet from Down Under by way of the Prairies ... and it paired well with the steak that was dinner.
