Red Blend, Robert Mondavi 07'
naked wine review 41
wine:Meritage-70% Cabernet, 12% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc
place tasted:in a dollhouse living room relaxing on a tiny little fainting couch
serve with:Baghala Polo, an Iranian lamb and rice dish. don't forget to set a garnish of feta, walnuts, and raw sweet onion on the dinner table (that's how I learned to do it)
appearance:deep blood red velvet in color, velvet tempered by age resulting in that kind of rusty rich orange around the edges look. very pleasing to the eye.
taste:spicy, with warm, tastefully understated complexities of rich red fruit, sandalwood, citrus, and oak. soft round tannins gently and subtly hug the tongue giving great pleasure. finishes with a dreamy naked kiss and a euphoric sensual afterglow. no regrets, you'll be glad you brought her home.
bouquet:breath in the scent of warm fruit-pastry endorphins exciting the snoot and making the palate wet and ready for action.
balance:extremely well balanced with beautiful shapely legs, sticky and moist that cling to the inside of your glass before moving slowly down the sides for your consumption.
comments:this wine allows the palate to swoon to a lovely and balanced quintet conducted by the great maestro, Robert Mondavi.
