Chris Kern wrote such an awesome review on his website and store Forgotten Grapes that we had to share it with you here: "How do we know this wine is, to quote Moe Szyslak, "awesomely outrageous?" When the first six words on the back label read, and we quote, "Sounds like Cluck, pairs with duck". Honestly, we should just drop the mic right there (this wine certainly does). Mourvedre, Syrah, and Grenache - and honestly, you never see MSG blends anywhere; hell, you don't even see MSG in Chinese food joints anymore. It's a full-frontal and in-your-face assault of spices and pepper and blueberry and cherry that will leave you breathless and panting and wanting more...like a Sam Kinison concert or a night with Amy Schumer [rimshot] Hey yo! We'll be here all week. You've been a fantastic audience. Don't forget to tip your waitress and enjoy the veal!"
From the back label:
Sounds like Cluck, pairs with Duck - what more can we say without gettin’ keelhauled and sent to walk the plank? We can say that this Rhône-style blend of Mourvedre, Syrah, and Grenache is a veritable broadside of aromas and flavors. Just the thing to “splice the mainbrace”, if you know what we mean.
22% Syrah - from Tanner Vineyards
17% Grenache - from Twisted Oak, Colina Roja Block
How can one's mouth water when it is filled with liquid? I don't know, but this wine makes it happen! This is a juicy, delicious blend of blackberry, cherry, and cedar, with layers of leather and tobacco smoke. There is warm spice as the wine rolls across the tongue and down the throat, with firm, chewy tannins resolving in a delightfully dry finish.
I had this alone as an evening sipper, and it was wonderful. With the high tannins and full body, this wine will pair famously with a well marbled steak, or any other rich food.
Superb! Great job, Jeff!!
