BoRing Cohn….

In the glass this Cab off of Cali’s North Coast shows a medium-purple, thick core that surrounds itself by a dark pink hallow.

When I give this wine a first sniff, there isn’t much there…. after I take a step back and shove my nose in the glass for another smell, I eventually get some dried floral notes with blackcurrant.

At first taste, I get some black cherry that takes an uneventful journey towards watered down berries and vanilla. Unfortunately, the berries are non-descript and kind of muted by this wines anticlimactic, watered down personality… There’s dark chocolate somewhere in there towards the end but it doesn’t compliment anything. This is kind of a boring mess…

I understand that this is BR Cohn’s Silver Label – the more affordable value wine that they offer to the masses…. But that’s really not an excuse. While it sits in the 20 – 25 dollar range, I can point you towards some better reds for half the price. Stick with me folks and I’ll show you some GEMS!

This one just isn’t my jam y’all…
