The 2017 Perseverance Cabernet Sauvignon had 13.5% alcohol, cost under $15, and scored a good 15 points on the Dionysian scale of a possible 20.

Still a little young and didn’t need to be decanted, it was poured into the glasses an hour prior to dinner. It was purplish, had some spice notes among the red fruits aromas.  It was clean and had a medium finish.


The front label script is tedious to read, but the wine was okay for a simple dinner of french fries and a cheeseburger loaded with onions. It all worked and showed that you need wine with every meal.

The wine was bought in bulk and bottled by Great Domains & Estates in Parlier, California. I’m guessing the juice came mostly from the Central Valley.  Any wine is better than no wine. In Vino Veritas.
