Mad Housewife Cabernet Sauvignon
I'm not a housewife.
I'm a man.
BUT in order to drink this wine in the mindset of its intended audience (the disgruntled housewife stuck at home, chasing children, changing diapers, constant crying, laundry, and all that other fun stuff), I decided to pour half the bottle into my glass...
Yep, HALF THE BOTTLE. Check out that picture!
That'll improve any tasting!
Alright, so here's another wine obviously targeted toward the female wine drinkers out there (much like the Little Black Dress wines). And I kind of like the retro housewife picture on the label... in some weird, borderline creepy kind of way. But, that's another topic altogether.
The Mad Housewife Cabernet Sauvignon is another cheap California wine ($6). It pours a dark purple and smells of fairly subdued cherries and a hint of nondescript herbs, with a bit of harsh alcohol. It primarily tastes of black cherry with hints of chocolate and pepper in the finish. Tannins and oak are not really present here, leaving a soft, short finish.
Mad Housewife Cabernet Sauvignon is fairly simple and fairly bland, but remarkably easy drinking and I guess when you're a mad housewife, easy-drinking is what you want...
Drink This: if just want to drink red wine. Granted, there's nothing off-putting or bad about this wine. It's just simple and easy, which ironically is also how I like my women. (Just kidding, Honey! I love you!)
Don't Drink This: if you're looking for a flavorful, complex, or challenging wine.
Cheers to all the mad housewives out there! Drink up!
