LuckyDuck : Cabernet Sauvignon : 2009

First review for this blog, and I will be trying LuckyDuck cabernet sauvignon, product of Chile.

The bottles been open for 5 minutes. The smell is very aromatic of freshly picked red cherries and plums, can sense some sort of a spice, but not sure which. Pouring the first glass now. The Red color of the wine itself is a beautifully vibrant fuchsia. Looks like the juice of a blackberry almost.

The concoction is very thick, this is known to be full-bodied. Almost like syrup. The texture is interesting to say the least. Let me try a second drink. Yup, still thick. It kind of bothers me a bit that its so thick. I think i would much rather this if it were a significant amount dryer. Because the initial slime feeling that coats my tounge makes me ignore the thought that it might have a different flavor and i instantly swallow it with out much of an after taste. The grapes linger a bit, but no real initialization. No real flavor to this. Its like. Boredom for my taste buds. Boredom and rejection.

Wait what is this, was i drinking it wrong the whole time?! I drank it a little faster that sip, forcing the alcohol up the backside of my soft palate, IS THIS OAK my nose sense?! Possibly.. Also after breathing in a cup, or perhaps the first few sips lightened me up,im not sure, its starting to taste better. The warmth on the body that its starting to generate is very subtly and relaxing as if too be a soft melody sung by rock beached sirens.

 I believe this wine to be a total fail, and will probably never drink it again. I didnt like the texture, not much flavor, and all around sucky experience.. Though it was pretty and smelled lovely.

Cost + tax :  $4.78
Chaos Rating: 1/5

Lucky Duck : Cabernet Sauvignon

Hello people, let me talk about the mission.

The mission of this blog post is to introduce the purpose behind this blog. Ive recently gained interest into the topic of wine. Im taking this topic, trying to disect everything thing that it is to be a wine conisour, and do it on an extreeme budget. Im doing this now, as a poor man, so later when i have my own private jet, it wont be stocked with expensive ajax and tonic.

What better way to discover how to use ones palate then with something inexpensive?
