The King of Reds

Black Fox Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon!

I totally get it!

I got this bottle from my Wine Insiders shipment…

I swirled my glass, smelling tons of juicy red fruits like cherry and berry.

The taste was way more complex than I’ve experienced so far.  The cherry was still there, but before the alcohol finished me off, I want to say I caught some kind of spice.

First, we paired it with dinner, cheese tortellini in red sauce with steak strips. It was great.

The next day, we nibbled it with dark chocolate.  Still a winner.

I’ve been having tons of fun retraining my palate for wine.  Even though it isn’t sweet at all, I can still taste the ✌️🏾fruitiness ✌️🏾 and complexity in this wine.  Needless to say, I really enjoyed it.

Wine pairing doesn’t have to be complicated at all. When dining out, let the waiter recommend something you’ll enjoy.  Remember that the flavors in wine can echo flavors in your meal, like roasted meat, and spices, but at the same time stand on their own with flavors of fruit, berry, or even vanilla.
