|UH…. SAMMY? YOU OK?|
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a music selection so tonight I’m writing this review to the tune of some 1980’s rock! Sammy Hagar, Twisted Sister, Poison, Quiet Riot, hell friggin’ yeah! What a great decade for music, right? Just look at those outfits. Just listen to those guitars. Go take a look at my music selection playlist on YouTube because tonight we ain’t lookin’ for nothin’ but a good time!
The color of the wine is a deep dark red with a purple hue. And OOOF! What a loud nose you have! Almost as loud as the Red Rocker himself! ***FIFFFTYYY FIIIIIIIVE!!!*** Blackberries, black cherries, sweet spices, and earth just waft out of the glass like it’s a fog machine at a Def Leppard concert. On the palate it’s medium to full bodied with a smooth mouthfeel, dusty tannin, and charismatic acidity. For flavors there’s a pyrotechnic explosion of blackberries, along with black cherries, cocoa powder, and brown sugar. Then it finishes with black cherries, wood, and that dusty tannin.
This wine has plenty of the #1 thing I appreciate the most when reviewing wine: character. That doesn’t mean that it has to be highly expressive because character can be about subtlety and nuance too, but this one happens to be highly expressive. I picked a good wine to match with this music selection, because this wine is loud and it wants to party. But it’s also some good quality juice for a $20 Carménère.
