My first wine review! After all the research I did, I now feel confident that I can share my opinion with you. The wine I chose was a Cabernet Sauvignon by the winery Murphy Goode. Murphy Goode is located in Sonoma County, California in the Alexander Valley. In 1985, partners Tim Murphy, Dale Goode, and Dave Ready decided to join the world of wine making and I'm glad they did!
Originally for me to buy a wine that I want to try, I base my picks on the price and of course the prettiest of labels. Murphy Goode has large lettering so eventually our paths would cross but luckily for me my work carries it by the glass. Shoutout to Sonny Lubick's Steakhouse! Now, I base it off my preference to the grapes I like and one of my faves is Cabernet Savignon. Even better, it was the lowest in prices!
“I’ll take one, please.”
I swirl my wine and see the alcohol legs dribble down the glass. For those of you that don’t know what I’m talking about, you can see the alcohol content by swirling your wine. It basically separates the alcohol from the rest of the drink and in a clear wine- tainted liquid it drips down and around the glass.
First smell, I get a hint of a licorice aroma. First drink. Quite a hit of flavor and it lingers. The first note I taste is fruity then it goes sweet. There’s a hint of licorice in there. Mmmm tasty!
As time goes on the wine gets easier to drink. My mouth must be accustomed to the fruity notes and sweetness with a touch of licorice.
“Can I have another, please.”
