WINE REVIEW #1: Gentleman's Collection 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

There are many opinions about wines out there already, and many of them are from people with far more training and qualifications to offer them than me. When it comes to matters of taste however, there really isn’t anything that makes anyone’s more or less valid than anyone else’s, no matter what some would have you believe. With that, we are proud to begin offering brief reviews of wines as we try them, and hopefully will include some opinions about entire wineries in our area in the near future. To kick things off, we have the cabernet sauvignon from the Gentleman’s Collection. We picked this up at the store simply on the strength of the well-designed packaging. As you know, the old adage warning against judging a book by its cover is very often well worth heeding, but thankfully in this case, it did not apply. This is a mellow, velvety cab, that goes down exceptionally smooth. There is a hint of tartness, and some subtle chocolate notes are present, but the most immediately notable feature is the rich, buttery aroma. This all combines for a very satisfying and enjoyable experience that is hard to resist. This was a perfect choice for an evening spent with family and friends and is a wine I will definitely be revisiting in the near future. GRADE: A
