Swill or Swell: Episode 21
Corvelia Cabernet Sauvignon
Welcome to Swill or Swell, a weekly series where I taste grocery store wines and let you know if they’re worth the buck or just meant for the drain!
CAVEAT! As you read this, please keep in mind that wine is subjective! This means that everyone enjoys different things and something I like might not be something you like and vice versa. I’ll be as objective as I can with facts about the wine’s quality, but in the end if your opinion differs from mine...that’s perfectly fine! Wine is only worth drinking if YOU like drinking it!
LET’S INTRODUCE THE WINE
Today we’ll be tasting a Corvelia Cabernet Sauvignon. I purchased this from Trader Joe’s for $9.99. I’ve heard great things about this wine, and see it often on the “Top Five” Trader Joe’s blog posts.
CORVELIA CABERNET SAUVIGNON FUN FACTS
Let’s start by talking about the Cabernet Sauvignon varietal.
WINE TASTING NOTES
Look: A very dark, deep red
Smell: For a Cabernet, it has a light, herbal aroma to it. I’m also getting some cherry
Taste: A very pleasant wine. Buttery in feel, but not taste.
Food Pairing - Something fatty and salty to counteract the sugar
Occasion - Definitely a Netflix wine
Rating - I would give this a swell! I would buy this again!
