More Crude Feelings
Let’s face it. A young Cabernet can be an ‘Ugly Duckling’. There is nothing elegant or refined about it. It’s puckeringly astringent and searingly tart. But, like in Hans Christian Andersen’s story, let time do its magic to mellow the painful tannins. Suddenly those rough edges that once made you wince have been transformed into appetizing, libatious curves. And your ‘Ugly Duckling’ of a red is now a swan – delectable and divine.
