Despite many attempts to shoo away this honeybee from the wine press, the little sot kept coming back for yet another slurp of Vinoland's 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon.  Can't really blame the bee for wanting to do a little wine tasting, the new vintage tastes lovely, hot out of the press.  Which begs the question.  Can bees get hangovers?  At the very least, this bee is going to have a bad headache come morning.
This particular pressing shows lots of promise having a concentrated cherry vibe and solid framework of tannins.  The addition of a little bit of aging in oak, with its contribution of vanillin, will no doubt round out this juvenile pandemic-vintage.  And that's it.  I'm done!

Cool bee, photo, and I'm sure: Cabernet Sauvignon.
Lucky you! Well, I doubt luck had anything to do with your reaping the fruit of your labor!
Cheers. šŸ„‚

NHW: I feel like a very busy worker bee sometimes, nurturing the vines to ensure they produce adequate sugar to make wine, but I love it.

I know you love it! And you've kindly shared on this blog in such a way as to give some of that love freely to all those who would partake; now that's lucky us!
