Weekly Wine – Stormy Bay

2 May

StormyStormy Bay Cabernet Sauvignon
2014
South Africa
750ml
14% ABV
$9.95 (LCBO)

I liked this wine.
It had a nice bite to it. It was crisp and to the point.
There was a bit of a strange aftertaste but this was easily overlooked.
The first thing that stood out is that the colour was very nice – a very nice ruby red. The first sips were crisp and gave me the well-rounded, full-bodied flavour. The strange aftertaste just lingered or a little while on the palate and then quickly dissipated.
This wine stacks up well to other wines in the price category. It has a nice flavour and no real bad characteristics. It does not really stand out, but its sharp delivery of flavour makes it a nice wine.
The label is pretty funky as well.
