Tonight’s wine is the red House Wine from the Magnificent Wine Company. This is truly a red blend, comprised of 6 different types of grapes. I have had this wine several times because my friend Kandice introduced me to it years ago.
5% of this blend is Sangiovese grapes and I think that it over powers all the other grapes. For me Sangiovese is either hit or miss and I think in this case it is a miss. Don’t get me wrong, this wine definitely gets less tart the longer it is open and each glass is better than the one before. This was definitely a bit of a switch from last week’s Merlot.
Next week’s wine is going to be “Bitch.” I saw it when I picked up my bottle of House Wine and just couldn’t resist. It is a Grenache that is around $10 and can be found at Central Market. Go pick yourself up a bottle and drink along.
