The Ariel Cab Sav came recommended as a tried and tested favourite. Described as “a full-bodied, oak-aged voluptuous red wine”. I have to say I was a little disappointed (and glad I took backup wine).
She’s a tiny bit dry and tannic, but not enough to win me over. She’s not overwhelmingly sweet, but still too sweet for my liking. The main thing missing to me is any body or depth of flavour. There is no robustness or richness there (as we know is generally the case with many of the non alc reds!)
She would be ok I think chilled for summer drinking, but not what I am looking for as a fireside cosy.
The most exciting thing about this one is that it has a cork! Just like in the olden days! Yes I easily amused.
