Today’s Wine Review

In keeping with my New Year’s resolution (the only one I can keep) I opened another bottle of wine. I am so proud of myself, I finally found the perfect resolution, and one that I can make year after year and succeed. Drink more wine. So simple, I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner. Now I can call myself a huge success story.

Last night I fixed London broil for dinner and opened a bottle of Josh Cellars, Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013. This wine is from the North Coast Region in California. You can find Josh Cellars at and almost everywhere you buy wine. I have tasted many bottles of Josh wines and varietals, and I can say that I have never had a bad bottle of wine from Josh Cellars.

This was the first time I had tasted the Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon and was very pleased with this wine. The wine was a dark red color in the glass and when I swirled it around, the wine had great legs running down the side of the glass. It smelled like plums and alcohol and had a 14.5% alcohol content. The wine was dry and smooth almost soft and not at all harsh. I could taste blackberries and a hint of vanilla when I swished the wine around before I swallowed the wine. The slipped down my throat without a hint of harshness and had a long full finish. Very nice. The price was also very nice, I paid under $20 for a bottle. That is a bargain for a nice easy drinking Cabernet Sauvignon.

This wine complemented the London broil very nicely, forcing me to drink not two but three glasses of wine. Good thing I only had to walk across the room.

This is definitely a bottle I will buy again.
