Anyhow, this week's wine selection comes courtesy of my sister and sister-in-law. It is red... my sister-in-law is a red wine drinker who picks wine the same way I do. Looks. She is wine shallow too.
I did not think I liked red wine which I always kind of hated, simply because I think a glass of red wine looks so much more sophisticated then a glass of white wine (I keep telling you I'm shallow).
This is a California red wine by Parfait. It is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Merlot. I wonder if Syrah and Sirah are like Sara and Sarah...
The bottle describes this wine as "rich and lush with blackberry and chocolate flavors and a long smooth taste". I am not sure if I am loopy from drinking so much alcohol recently or if I'm just getting better at this, but I totally get it. This wine felt "full" on my tongue. I really can't describe it better than that. Sorry. It was also very smooth and although not really sweet, it did taste a little fruity. I did not feel it was dry at all. I REALLY liked this wine (notice the review is all in past tense? Gone.) I will be finding out where to get this because it is really good. I am also going to subtly suggest my sister and her wife always buy me wine since they are so much better at it.
