Day 133-2005 Cabernet Blush by Lynfred Winery came out at $20 for the first month with current price now $35
We should have bought this wine by the case when it was $20 the first month it was out for white wine club members. This wine was actually the reason we rejoined the white wine club at Lynfred. This wine is a late harvest dessert wine made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. According to the wine makers assistant at Lynfred, this wine was an accident, and in my opinion, one of the best accidents of Lynfred. This wine looks like a tawny port with legs, and slight pink and carmel hue. The wine tastes of black cherry, raisin, and some honey. This wine needs to be aerated, Troy likes it very chilled, and I like it a little cooler than room temperature. This wine is a special occasion wine. It only comes in half bottles and is way too expensive. We only have this wine because for Mother's Day, they gave us 25% off a mixed case of wine. It is too bad it is too pricey because I could easily drink a bottle of this a week.
