Wine Wednesday: 3 Blind Moose - Cabernet Sauvignon

I admit it. There is no denying it. I can't hold back the truth any longer -- I bought this wine because of its label. The image showing the 3 Blind Moose drinking, and the back of the bottle filled with "Moosisms" (i.e. "... you'll fall head over hooves...), won me over. Not to mention it was less than $10.

This cabernet, from California's Central Valley, is almost more purple, than it is a dark red. And it has a spicy aroma. The flavor, though good, was a little unusual. My wife and I both tasted black pepper and olives. Yes, I said olives. Sort of a cross between a black olive and a greek olive. Nonetheless, it was still good and it still tasted like wine, I just wasn't what I've normally come to expect from a cabernet.

Wine Recommendation: Good, but not great. Buy it if you'd like to try something a little different -- sort of like it's label.

Price: $ (Under $10)
