A Necessary Retreat?
Being the reasonable, self-aware man that I sometimes am, I can admit when I am wrong, or at least - partly wrong. My recent review of the Organica California Cabernet Sauvignon was somewhat glowing. Particularly attractive to me was the approximate $15 price tag and widespread availability of this bottling at the Real Canadian Superstore liquor store.
I have come to the conclusion that at best, this wine is wildly inconsistent, even across bottles and at worst, perhaps it is nowhere near as good as the first bottles I tried lead me to believe.

Hardly surprising as organic wines made in the US are prohibited from using sulphites. Without sulphite as a preservative it can very easily go.

It's been many years, but I can remember experiencing that same revelation. When I sobered up, I decided the rot-gut I was drinking wasn't nearly as tasty as it seemed, the night before.
