3 Blind Moose Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

A triumvirate of blind moose make delicious wine. (But if you read the label closely, you'll learn that the moose aren't really blind.)

Several months ago (in November, in fact), I got a peek at a bottle of 3 Blind Moose Cabernet Sauvignon 2003. The label, shown nearby, has a wonderful and fun feel about it. “No shades required!” proclaimed the label. Marketing is something that American vintners do better than most of their foreign counterparts: when was the last time you got a hoity-toity wine with a regulated label from Europe or something brought to you by the technology employed by the Australians that gave you as much as a giggle before popping the cork?

Of course, all of the marketing in the world won't make me rally behind a mediocre product. (I don't, for example, use Microsoft Windows.) This Cabernet Sauvignon is no mediocre wine. I tasted dark berry—made me think of cherry—along with plum, chocolate and a bit of oak. It had a surprising bit of spice, one that reminded me of a Zinfandel. The official tasting notes tell why: a small amount of Syrah and Zinfandel were blended in the 2003 to enhance the complexity and texture of the wine.

It has medium body, easy to drink, and one that will pair very nicely with a wide variety of meals or snacks. I have no reservation whatsoever in recommending giving this delicious wine a try.
