The king of tannin—no, the emperor! This heavy, flush beverage makes all others pale in any contest of cutting a cheese-heavy dinner. Ripe and red, medium-dark and velvet in its imagination of you. Taken with cheese scrambled eggs and cheese pizza; never take this wine without a cheesy meal.
Sweetly succulent and lightly effervescent. Oily and turbulent, rich in flavor, but a slightly dry suggestion at the finish. Most comparable to a late harvest riesling, plus about three three and half bubbles. Overtones of peaches and everything great about white wine knocking at the back door.
Firm and boring as any merlot should be, but it puts up a bit of a droll fuss from the sauvignon side of the fam. Delectably oaky, but only after the first swallow and evermore dry with each mouthful. Surely on the redder end of the red wines, a suggestion of cherries with none of the sweetness. Not too tannic, but enough to make the cheese go down. Tasted with muenster.
