2002 GOUNDREY OFFSPRING CABERNET SAUVIGNON






Sunday, 3/18, Little Rock and Wye Mtn, AR

Somewhat lazy day, especially this morning as the kids spent the night with the grandparents and weren't on the prowl at 7:30 this morning looking for breakfast. An afternoon trip was taken to Wye Mountain where there is a huge field of daffodils that people from all over come to look at. No really! Tonight's reviewed wine is an Australian from a winery I've had good luck with before although I had never tried anything in a red from them. This one had a very deep, rich, ruby hue with a nose of cherries and allspice. On the tongue I had to let it linger for several seconds as I was picking up something that tasted almost carbonated. It finally came to me that there is a heavy mint flavor along with the cherry that was picked up in the nose. The finish was not as smooth as I normally like and the tannins seemed a little over done and not as soft as I would have liked. I gave this one 3 Corkscrews as the taste was okay but at the $3.99/bottle I paid the value was excellent. I couldn't give it 4 as the taste was really nothing that blew me away but at that price I had no problem giving it 3. Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often, Drink Wine!
