Bwa ha ha ha ha!
Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s start tasting some wine. After a sour and disappointing just-opened bottle of 2007 Blue Pirate Oregon Pinot Noir from Cost Plus (totally going to go in and get a refund, stat), I was looking for something a little more powerful. And oftentimes, when you’re wanting power, you need to be a little evil.

The wine is a 2007 EVIL Cabernet Sauvignon from South Eastern Australia ($9.99, Cost Plus). According to the back label of the wine, “It’s just wrong.” Well, I wouldn’t go that far. I honestly wouldn’t say this wine is completely “right,” but it certainly isn’t “wrong.” The color on the wine is a deep burgundy with a brick-red halo … surprising for a Cabernet that’s so young. The nose was incredibly jammy, with tons of raspberry, black cherry and licorice. There was also a bit of spice on the nose in the form of yummy cinnamon.
The mouth was smooth and strong with very subtle tannins and a crisp, clean finish. The mouth was also very jammy with black cherry and raspberry, but also had some tomato (especially on the finish) and tobacco. It’s a smooth, easy to drink wine, but the only problem I have with it is that it’s not very memorable. Perhaps that will have to come with age, but right now the wine just kind of dissipates on the tongue … it doesn’t really wow my senses after it’s gone from my mouth.
In other news, the play rehearsals are going great. I’ve been having so much fun I can hardly stand it! Looking forward to opening night. Here’s a pic of the entire cast in our costumes. In case you can’t tell, I’m the one in the middle with the motorcycle chaps and a very, VERY wide open mouth. Gotta belt it loud and strong, right?
