Do not buy this wine
Back in October, I found "Trim 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon" at my Costco. The sign indicated that this wine was highly rated in the previous vintage but not rated for 2011. It was only $9.99 and looked like a great deal for a California Cab. I thought I should buy 2 bottles before they were all sold. I came home and opened the first bottle. I thought that it was worse than 2 buck chuck! I poured a glass for Cindy and without prompting she thought it was bland and tasted watered down. I let a month go by. I have found that sometimes I think a wine is not good, but when I open another bottle I wonder why I did not like it before. Tonight, I opened the other bottle and it was as bad or worse than the first bottle. Maybe we can throw it into pasta sauce or something. Last week, I noticed that there were still more bottles at Costco. Somehow, everyone else knew something I did not figure out! At least, if you read this, you will not be fooled!!
