Weekly Wine – Tic Tok

25 Mar

SONY DSCTic Tok Pocketwatch Cabernet Sauvignon
2012
Australia
750ml
14% ABV
$8.95 (LCBO)

The name of this wine…
The label…
What’s the word … whimsical?
That’s it.
An Aussie wine for under ten bucks. I have not been let down by any Australian wine. And very few wines, purchased at the LCBO for under a sawbuck, have left me disappointed.
I took this wine to a friend’s house to cheer the start of the Formula One season which happened, by coincidence, in Australia.
The race had a few moments but was rather unspectacular.
On the other hand – the wine was spectacular for all the wrong reasons.
It is not good. Syrupy sweet. Heavy without the flavour. Fruity yes – but the fruit that comes from the heavily discounted bin.
There was a time that I considered spilling this wine out – but the race still had a bit to run and there were no other options.
