I chose this Oxbow Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 to go with a home-made meatloaf that I put together after a very long and busy day at work. It is in the oven now and smells delicious. Although it is more like a grilling night (it is a very warm Michigan evening), I thought a good comfort dinner was in order for tonight.
This California cabernet makes me slap my forehead and say, “This is why I love Cabernet.” It is SO wonderful! We have reviewed this before and we will review it again, because it is a wine well worth purchasing over and over again. The color is rich and dark, the nose is intoxicating, and the taste is berries and oak. The finish is as long as it gets. This is a wonderful wine. You cannot go wrong with this one.
Tom: This Oxbow Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 is a rich, chocolaty, fruit-forward (jammy blackberry) cab. Dry but not super-tannic, it still tastes like “big” — an opulent, Friday-night quaff.
