Vicien, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009

4/5 $12.99

A robust label for a robust wine. Vicien is better known for its Malbec, but lives up to its reputation with this full bodied cab. While dark and smooth, I do believe it would benefit from some sharper tones – perhaps aged a little longer in oak. I enjoyed this wine with a burger and was shocked at its ability to compete for my taste buds attention. It was intrinsically complicated, continuously changing and interesting as it lingered.

You know the burnt-out entrepreneur in front of you in line at Target who was intermittently chuckling to himself? Nice to meet you, too. I recently gave up my day job so my productivity, and drinking, have increased dramatically.
