Red Blend, Gundlach/Bundschu 04'

naked wine review 16
wine:Melrot/Cab/Cab Franc/ Petit Verdot
producer:Gundlach/Bundschu, Mountain Cuvee
region:Sonoma Valley California
date tasted:4/7/08
place tasted:the Pearl, because only the best will do.
served with:my buddy Moose in an exceptional dining experience featuring beautiful ginger scallops in their shells, spicy sauteed shrimp and filet mignon and more. We like the Pearl and we love the wine. Thanks Moose!
appearance:deep as Cobain Red with Cherry reflections'
taste:rich decadent black cherry lingering in vanilla caresses with sturdy, well balanced dusty tannins and velvety smooth tobacco/oak finish.
bouquet:of the Bell Pipe Shoppe with a lingering, delightfully complex cherry bomb breath.
balance:a Rubenesque beauty with gentle yet exotic features.
comments:Exudes affluence and poise. However one, two...many glasses may make you want to run through the park naked screaming "fuck me I'm rich, fuck me I'm rich". So remember: pride cometh before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall. Then go ahead and enjoy a bottle or two, you snotty bastard.
