Cabernet Sauvignon, L’Appel du Vide, Columbia Valley AVA, Washington, USA, 14.3% abv.

The meaning of ‘l’appel du vide’ is, ‘the call of the wild.’  One translation says it describes the urge to engage in destructive behaviours – like when you’re walking along and have “the inexplicable urge to jump into traffic”.

Seriously?  If you have urges like that, this wine won’t help much.  And what this term has to do with making wine, I have no idea.

The wine is a deep ruby with aromas of berries and green peppers and a dry palate that shows more blackberry with black pepper, kid glove and very sweet oak.

WSET Acceptable – average, over-manipulated and predictable.  I had a few intrusive thoughts about what to do with it while I was drinking it.  Save yourself the bother.
