Featuring a guest post by Autumn Melody!
Purchased from Naked Wines, $14.99
Blend of Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon, & Merlot
Aaron: There was a lot of oak and tart raspberry on the nose of this blend but surprisingly the flavor yielded chocolate and nutmeg. I felt this was smooth and full, mild enough to enjoy but with a solid finish. Though not the fruitiest wine (which usually leads to higher ratings on this blog!) I felt this was good. 93 points
Teri: For its strong robust smell, the wine flavor is limited. I tasted some mixed berry (raspberry and strawberry) with leafy green flavors. It was a calm blend and would go with multiple dishes and appease ‘new to red wine’ drinkers. 88 points
Autumn: I’m not a wine person really but Aaron and Teri made me post about this, which was actually pretty fun, maybe I’ll do some more guest posts later. I felt the flavor was very dry but smooth and not sweet enough for me. The flavor wasn’t bitter though and overall was relatively mild with no strong aftertaste. 88 points
