Dry, but very pleasant box wine *gasp* from South France. #dontjudge A real pounder! Super smooth, light as a feather, and this unassuming packaging packs a whopping 3 litres, and will keep for 6 weeks (but you won’t let it, trust me!).
Mineral aromas with floral notes, beautiful crisp fruits with light traces of canteloupe on the tongue.
Pairs well with seafood, and is ever so slightly briny.
Fall is upon us, and I jumped into a glass that just embodied the season. A lovely mix of Merlot and Malbec, this one was velvety smooth, deeply fruity, and made me feel all warm inside, like the perfect cashmere sweater. I definitely got deep berry flavors, some vanilla, and when I paired it with food, I caught tar!
Call me what you want, but I live for new flavors and aromas in every pour. I’m having a great time exploring wine and everything about it!
The beauty of blends, I am learning, is they take the best of each varietal and bring you something special. I definitely had fun with this one and can’t wait to get my hands on some more.
I’m sure you’ve read my posts that answer the question, Why? Read more to know how.
So, when I go to my local Wine & Spirits, I run into the same old names, and maybe a few, new on the scene, distributed for mass consumption. I can either rest on my familiar comforts, or step out of my comfort zone to a hit or miss.
My preference is to utilize a subscription that not only guarantees satisfaction (most clubs will replace a selection if you don’t like it), but comes right to my door, and is expertly curated.
Like I’ve mentioned elsewhere, it’s the difference between sticking with a mass produced name or shopping boutique.
I’ve always been different.
I love looking forward to my shipments, reading about my wines, and drinking premium wines that I haven’t paid premium prices for. There’s absolutely no guesswork for me, and honestly, no legwork, either!
Instead of strolling the same aisles to still take a shot in the dark when you’re feeling adventurous, why not have the pros choose for you, and ship it right to your door?
It’s really a no brainer.
