(From tonight’s Tasting Notes) It is dark purple or ruby in color, medium to full bodied, and has a beautiful array of intense aromas and flavors. We could only be talking about Cabernet Sauvignon! We taste a couple of good ones tonight, and along the way, discover this wine’s “sexy factor” which of course brings out a little “12 year old humor.” Just another night drinking wine! The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
