Big Ass Cabernet

Big Ass Cabernet
What Possessed Us To Open Wine?
We were home from New Orleans having lunch with normal people who were not wearing purple, gold or green beads of any kind which was wonderful.
But we were still in the mood for fun and the label on this bottle is just about as fun as it gets! Does anyone really need a reason to drink a wine with the name Big Ass Cabernet?
What Did The Label Want Us To Know?
The picture of the dancing couple is just so fun and wonderful. They are obviously trying to get the point across that this is going to be big and it was! They use the words intense and lush. I think they could have added more and bigger adjectives. “If you are serious about Cabernet, you should be extremely happy.” Not a lie.
What’s So Great About It?
David took one sip and exclaimed, “It’s as large as the woman on the label and it hits you with both cheeks.” Really, he loved it, thought it was bold with a good finish and a subtle smoky flavor.
Jess said the name certainly fits her and was dry with some kind of fruit flavor and does not taste at all like ass.
Pam said, This IS a big ass cabernet!” and she also pointed out that she thought the man portrayed on the bottle was actually wider than the woman! Go Pam!
There was NO chance I wouldn’t like this wine if it were anything like its name and it did not disappoint me!
Fantasy This Wine Engendered:
Big is the new beautiful and the size of my back side has nothing to do with how lush and desirable I am. I am loved as much as we all loved this wine!
Conversation This Wine Engendered:
New Orleans seems obsessed with death
Loyalty is a good Phlegmatic quality
Where are the young noble kings?
