“Somewhere near the cool shadows of the laundry room. Past the litter box and between the plastic yard toys. This is your time. Time to enjoy a moment to yourself. A moment without the madness. The dishes can wait. Dinner be damned. Mad Housewife Cabernet Sauvignon.” So reads the descriptor on the back of the bottle! What’s domestic bliss without a little wine?
While visiting in Vancouver last weekend, my daughter-in-law, Sara ( that’s her with the pretty smile, peeking at us from behind the “Mad Housewife”!) bought this wine at a boutique wine store.
It is from Manteca, California ( Manteca is approx 76 miles east of San Francisco.) She was intrigued by the name and of course the label! This wine is described as:
Mad Housewife Cabernet Sauvignon
“Ripe cherries, mint, and mocha characterize this soft, beautiful expression of the grape. The bouquet offers an explosion of sweet preserves while the palate is delighted with the smooth, lush sensations of silky Cabernet.”
I asked her how much she paid for it, and the cost was $ 18. We all agreed this was a little overpriced, as the wine was very palatable, but did not live up to the descriptor above. If you could find it at a regular store and not a Specialty wine shop, I’m sure the price would be somewhat lower.
Regardless, it was fun to try & it was certainly very drinkable & hey, if it keeps all the housewives happy, it’s done its job!!
