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 love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.
