Being personal is the best way to start. Let's say you need to get across the simplicity of your box wine. Well, don't break out the French or Italian, bub!
Next, share a photo, or a video. It let's everyone see a more personal style.
That's all there is to it. Oh, remember you may only add up to 25 wines for each WinePost.

2007 Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon - Rites of Passage


Tonight, my oldest daughter (33) requested to taste red wine. Heretofore, her tastes leaned toward dry to semi-dry whites. Of course, I enjoyed many of those vintages with her. This evening at dinner; however, was different!

I had two bottles of 2007 Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon that I had been holding for approximately 4 years and decided that would be of such a nature needed to introduce her the world of reds. I was on the mark! Her first remarks were, "This is good. This is very smooth!" We had a winner!

On the nose, there was the unmistakable aroma of ripe, black currant. It was bright and vibrant! The fruit followed on the palate accompanied by white pepper and a hint of anise. The fruit, acidity, and tannins were well integrated to produce a smooth experience on the palate. The finish was not as long as I would have preferred, but it was silky smooth with notes of dark chocolate and coffee.

This was a wonderful evening enjoyed by all. And, I am one proud Dad to have introduced my oldest to the world of red wine!
