SEVEN GENERATIONS MERLOT 2012

IT'S A FAULTY BOTTLE!!!! NOOOOOOOOO!!! I knew something was wrong when the cork was down the neck farther than it should be. Then the cork crumbled as I took it out, and the wine smelled all gooey and sticky and spoiled. Goddamnit! I hate that! But not as much as I hate Nazis.

TELISH CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2013

This Cab is out of the Thracian Lowlands and has a 14.5% ABV. The color of this wine is reddish purple with ruby highlights. Holy eucalyptus and graphite, Batman! I mean, right away there's no mistaking this Cabernet for anything but Cabernet. Beyond the aromas of eucalyptus and graphite there's black cherries, vanilla, and tobacco. It's medium bodied with soft tannin and a balanced acidity. There's flavors of black cherries, red currant, graphite and eucalyptus. It finishes dry with flavors of red currant and graphite. Yeah, man! This is a darn good Cab for the price range! I recommend it!

QUALITY VS PRICE RATING
Price: $14
Rating: 1/5 = Recommended. (what does that mean?)
