Gato Negro, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chile 2014

Price: $8.99  SBH Rating: 🎶  💁   💾   📼

A glass of Gato Negro will surely take you back to your college days. In fact, this may have been the first "nice" bottle of wine I ever bought. $8.99! I feel 19 again, impressing my dinner hosts with an international gift. This is a bonafide Wednesday night wine, with a faint hint of mushrooms at the nose, reminiscent of my second basement apartment. Ah! The memories. Slightly acidic with a lilac perfume and a waft of gouda. I could fondly call this wine Professor Boehm.
