Wednesday's Wine - Guadagni Cabernet Sauvignon, 2006 or maybe it's La Famiglia Guadagni Cabernet Sauvignon, 2006

So I mentioned last week that I had a yummy wine on which I forgot to take notes. Well, I bought another bottle ($6.00 at 3 S Liquors) and am drinking it now...as I write. Taking notes right here, right now. I wanted to provide a picture of the label too, but alas I could not find one online...anywhere. Unless you speak some other language and even then I'm not sure those sites would have it since this wine is bottled by Oak Ridge Winery in Lodi, California. So, I'll just cut to the chase on this one. For $6.00, if you can find it, this Cabernet Sauvignon is pretty tasty. It's a bit on the light side for a Cabernet, but not as light as a Merlot. It's a bit woody, like the way you'd imagine that wine with unburned firewood soak in it might taste. It's not fruity like the Shiraz's but definitely has the grape taste that a wine better have...right!?! It does have a bit more noticeable alcohol taste, but that is common with wines at this price point. It tastes good with a steak, and mild Mexican or Italian dishes. For $6.00, I'm good with buying it again.

I like wines with a wood flavor in them.

Did you find yourself singing the CCR song? "Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi again."
