What Possessed Us To Open Wine?

A couple quite adept at wine-making were coming for dinner. I had to get their opinion on a wine. And this time, one they had no hand in crafting.

What Did The Label Want Us To Know?

First, what a beautiful bottle, but that shouldn’t be surprising since this is from the Michael David Winery. They mention Lodi, but they do not describe what you will taste. Instead on the back is a charming poem that explains the 6 senses that I will not repeat here but send you on a scavenger hunt to your nearest wine store to read. I will only give you this hint: It is not about seeing dead people. Well, not really.

What’s So Great About It?

Cathy, no lover of red wine thought it smelled sharp but was actually smooth with food. She also used the word: plumy. Woody thought it was leathery and detected oak. David smelled oak and I just thought that the color was gorgeous. It was quite hearty and could stand up to a good steak.

Blending wines and what is in the Merlot that Woody will not tell us?
