Weekly Wine – Sawmill Sauvignon

7 Dec

smccsSawmill Creek Cabernet Sauvignon
Year: N/A
Canada
750ml
12.5% ABV
$9.99 (Edmonton bottle shop)

I have written about the state of wine prices in Alberta previously.
I bought more than one bottle though. This was the second that I opened. This is also a hybrid wine made from grapes from wherever. Actually it is a blend of wine from wherever. It could be “Make your own Wine Store” wine. Probably not, but I am very sceptical of hybrid wine.
This scepticism is not without merit.
I tried this wine on the tail of trying the Sawmill Creek Shiraz and I could not really appreciate the difference. There was a slight taste difference. The body was very similar. The feeling that you want more from a wine was the same as in the Shiraz.
But that is not the most unfortunate part.
While this wine doesn’t make you retch it does make you grimace.
It is blasé generic wine that is barely drinkable.
I’d move on.
