Red Table Wine
Dispatch from the Cellar:
Mistake or fate? I pondered this as I removed the hose from the stainless steel tank. The wrong tank; lot 1203 and lot 419 were now one. Once destined to be bottled individually, now and forever fused. A phone call to a mentor elicited a quick response, “Varietal wine? What for? blend it man and blend it well.” So be it, I decided, and reached for a glass to see what blue ruin had been created by this mishap.
Faster than you can say “peanut butter and chocolate,” I realized that this blend was here to stay. Well-balanced and lush with peppery spice, great aromatics while a bit of tannin brings up the rear and offers a stable backbone. Try this wine with rare beef, Oso Bucco, or your own favorite culinary error.
Culinary blunder or not. E.X.C.E.L.L.E.N.T.
