Red WineI like to consider myself an emerging wine connoisseur and I posted several wine reviews on my old defunct blog “D”igital Breakfast. I promise to repost those reviews here over the course of the next few weeks.

I really enjoy a glass of wine these days and I'm tired of drinking cheap junk. So I decided to start trying different wines and post my reviews of them. Winter is upon us and I’ll be drinking more than my normal share of wine in the evenings. I usually do this while sitting on my lazyboy chair, curled up with a good book, and in front of the wood burning stove.

So to start off the first wine review, I submit to my readers a 5 out 5 star rated wine that I stumbled across at the local Bottle King.

  • Name: Shelby Grant Reserve, 2004
  • Type: Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Location: Napa Valley, CA
  • Cost: $19.95 (member price $14.95)

This wine is a wonderfully tasting cabernet that’s not overly dry. The key word to describe this wine is an incredible balance between sweetness, dryness, robustness, taste, and nose. It’s a delightfully rich but not an overpowering wine that even my wife loves.

I can’t say anything bad about this wine and consider myself really lucky to have found this almost by accident. I highly recommend pairing it with your turkey during Thanksgiving or enjoying it with Brie. This wine's taste, balance, and cost lead me to give it the highest rating I’ve ever given, 5 stars! Excellent!
