Red 7 North Coast Proprietary Red Wine – 9.0 (90/100 Pts) – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

9.0

This is a fun wine – a blend that is known only to the wine maker.   I did take 7 guesses as to each of the seven varieties in this wine: 1. Merlot 2. Grenache 3 Syraj 4 Cabernet Sauvignon 5 Zinfandel 6. Petite Sirah and 7 Mourvèdre.  I could be partially correct or completely wrong but I don’t think I am 100% correct either.  Again a fun wine to enjoy on it’s own or with pasta, pizza, burger and other foods.

This wine is layered and balanced with a great canvas of acid and alcohol to encapsulate wondrous scent and flavour characteristics:

Scent of Juniper forest floor, stone fruit orchard, freshly sliced black Krim tomatoes, cedar and leather.

Flavour profile of red cherry, Marionberry, red tea, tamarind, cardamom, allspice, Marjoram, violets and pepper.

¡Salud!

About James Melendez

I have two blogs on this descriptor page--I use to be able to make separate. My fragrance blog is to express my thoughts on fragrance. A passion in addition to wine. I think it is a stellar component to the senses and that which I am in love with. I hope you like both blogs. My "wine" blog also incorporates those categories intimately involved - wine, food, travel and lifestyle. We all need food and water to survive but we need wine to nourish our soul. My favourite varietals are Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo, Grenache, Syrah-Shiraz.. for my red wines. And I often circle back to these varieties and sometimes they are my home varieties. The journey of wine is an historical footnote also marked by viti-viniculture and artistry that makes this beverage a living one. I have worked professionally in the wine trade and have loved all aspects; marketing, history, science and art of wine. © 2014 James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy— All Rights Reserved – for my original Content, logo, brand name, rating, rating graphic and award and designs of James the Wine Guy.
