Cabernet Sauvignon – Joostenberg

This is the wine served at Artful Dodgers. I love this restaurant and if you are interested I will posting about it soon.

They have only one selection of wine, and it is this one. Many of my dear friends always complain that even though the food is excellent, they do not like the wine. Before starting this blog, I did not understand all the reasons, but now that I have learned a little I went again and tried it once more with Grexxen and the SaltyAvocado.

Well, it is a Cabernet Sauvignon, one of the strongest types of wine out there and it does not really matches all tastes, sometimes it is just not best for girls night out. It matches best with red meats, so maybe if we would have a good steak instead of salad and pasta, that we usually order, then we might enjoy it better. And finally, they serve at room temperature, which is usually ideal for red wines, but since Taiwan is so hot, room temperature is about 30 degrees and this accentuates the alcohol taste.
Overall the wine is not bad, here are it’s characteristics:

Fruitiness: 3.7/5

Sourness : 3.2/5

Tanning: 4.1/5

Style: Medium

Body: 4.5/10

[Note: Fruitiness, sourness and tannin, are a red wine characteristics, they do not define the quality of a wine]

Overall SunShower and gang rating is:
