We all know that I have a love-love relationship with red wine. And a good bottle of cheap red wine is one of my favorite finds.
Our most recent find is Rex-Goliath Cabernet Sauvignon.
Since it is so cheap, Josh picked up a bottle thinking that we could use it to make sangria. However, after being pleasantly surprised with how good it was, I ended up drinking it all before we could make any sangria.
The website describes the award-winning wine as "Dark and intense in color. Hints of cedar and oak, with layers of raspberry, plum, mocha, and currant. Smooth tannins with big fruit flavors lead to a lengthy and persistent finish." And the following is from the label: "At the turn of the century, HRM (His Royal Majesty) Rex Goliath was a treasured circus attraction. Weighing in at 47lbs, Rex was billed as the 'World's Largest Rooster.' Our wines are a tribute to Rex's larger than life personality with big, fruit-forward flavors sure to please. Our hearty Cabernet is dark and intense - it's long on fruit and short on attitude." Love it.
It is definitely a solid bottle of red wine. I'm not saying it's the best Cab ever, but it's only $5.99 a bottle (at Kroger)...$5.99!
[Don't judge me for drinking it out of a juice glass. It's Tuesday.]
I want to try the Rex-Goliath Pinot Noir next. Whole Foods recently had it on display as one of their "Top Ten" picks...and it was two bottles for $12 something. Score.
