Alcoholic Air Miles – Trapiche Cabernet Sauvignon

15 Mar

Alcoholic Air Miles is a recurring segment on His, Hers and Theirs. It delves into the secret world of picking up bonus Air Miles from regular, everyday purchases from the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (“LCBO”) stores. Every month, the LCBO changes which items receive bonus Air Miles and He tries to keep you on top of those changes. These are His stories…

Hold onto your butts, because it’s time for another…

This edition is chronicling the life of a very palatable bottle of Trapiche Cab-Sauv.  This is apparently a premium wine!  This wine is full flavoured and has a rich taste to it.  It does not taste like grape juice.  The last wine I had did taste a little Welchy.  This is grown up.  For grownups.

It’s Argentinian and has an amazing picture of the country on the back of the label.  Or is that a scared elephant in profile?

Regardless, good wine, good price, great bonus air mile amount (6 for a bottle that’s less than $8, that might be an alcoholic air miles record for air miles/$!) and good times.  I started this bottle a few days ago and it’s still going strong. One glass more and it’s onto the next one!
