AltTulsa likes sip a little wine every now and again—just for dinner, you understand. It helps the digestion.
In recent weeks, we sipped our way through several bottles of a good 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile, a country that has a history of producing quality wines at a good price.
This Locomotora red is a relatively light Cab with a rounded, balanced flavor. It's a bit hot or peppery at first swig, but calms down a bit in another sip or two. It shows a lot of fruit flavors, perhaps a combination of dark cherry and other fruits. The finish is fairly long as well, a good sign in our book.
We drank it with food and with appetizers and cheese, and it worked well every time. At about $8 a bottle at Ranch Acres in Tulsa, it's worth a try.
