Our new wine! Genuine Risk, Merlot, Santa Ynez, 2005.
It's totally different from the styles we've made in the past. It's pretty big and juicy. I mean BIG and JUICY. I think the rich texture is really nice. You get lots of intense black fruits like plums and blackberries with flavors that really linger for a while after you swallow. Just like a good date. KIDDING! Can't anyone take a joke around here?
This is a good quaffing wine prior to dinner or would be good with chocolate cake just like Mom used to make... from a box and chocolate icing from a tin can. Umm Umm Good.
Available at Silverlake Wine for $22.
