Happy Hour: Cab-ulous

I was at Cost Plus scoping out the after-Christmas-holiday candy, when a certain wine display caught my eye. These wines — named Cab-ulous, Chardon-Yeah!, and Zin-fatuation — looked fun, flirty, and appealing. I assumed you guys would be into them, yet I couldn't help but wonder if it was just a clever, marketing ploy.

To find out, I bought a bottle of the Cab-u-lous and brought it over to my friendly, wine-snob pal. I figured if anyone was going to give me a good opinion, it would be him. The vintage we had was a 2005; it was still pretty young and it showed. The wine barely stained the cork, and the smell was rather fruity, actually make that Kool-Aidy. The initial signs were not good, but we carried on and were pleasantly surprised. It wasn't an amazing wine, but it was only $10 and was smooth and easy to drink. As the wine snob said, "She's everyone's friend. No one is going to really dislike her. They might not have an opinion, but they won't hate her." I couldn't have put it better myself. No one will have a problem drinking this wine. It's nothing amazing, but it does have a clever label and would be a good, inexpensive purchase.

Also, it appears to be distributed by Trinchero Family Estates, however, I could not find it for sale online. If you do see them, don't pay too much, the bottles were $9.99 at Cost Plus.
