TODAY'S FEATURED WINE
WoodBridge: Cabernet Sauvignon: California: : 2013: United States
This Mondavi Woodridge 2013 Cab was a very pleasant surprise for its suggested retail price of $6.99.
Full-bodied fruit (cassis, fig), nice intensity and healthy, balanced measures of oak and tannin.
The wine, however, was the only saving grace for an Amtrak Coast Starlight meal featuring soggy lasagna rated six circles of Hell beneath Chef Boyardee. A
mtrak Hell's seventh circle came when rail devils charged me $6 for a 187ml bottle (99 cents less than a full 750ml.)
For winery tasting samples, gifts from friends or family or samplings at a party or event, review it truthfully, but only if I like it. If I have paid my own very-hard-earned money on a bottle, the gloves are off and it gets what it deserves ... whether perfect or puerile.
