Avast! Dead men tell no tales, and the scurvy dogs who concocted this blend ain’t talking either. It may be the finest grog that ever graced the Spanish Main, or bilge water not even fit for swabbin’ the poop deck. Ask me parrot if ye wants to know. (Arrrr! This be the last time Cap’n Slappy be writin’ the tasting notes.)

Twisted Few member Elizabeth J. notes: "Tonight we drank the Ol Chum Bucket 2012. When we first tasted it, it was all elbows and knees, like a gangly 13 year old. Oh my dear what it became. Tobacco, a huge cherry and your signature spice, this is a big wine. Yet it has that note of violet from the Tempranillo. This is a beautifully structured wine that I paired with a spinach lasagna and simple romain salad. Oh Magoo, you’ve done it again!"

Well me hearties, I'm feelin' kinda tired from my last trip that just finished up today, and have decided to drop my pirate lingo for this review...although, if I was fishing for sharks in the waters, the name of this wine is quite let's go!

The color in the glass is a deep red onion skin, but not too deep to be inky.

On the nose, I'm picking up some cherry notes, tobacco leaf, and cedar wood, with some general spicy aromas as well.

Onto the palate, and we get more cherry fruit, touch of leather, some oak, and a hint of mushroom. Some earthiness in there as well.

Overall this is a very nice wine - not just fit for sharks, but for us land lubbers as well.

Bas vers le haut!
