|Seriously, isn't this just|
I will admit that the first time I had a glimpse of this new wine was on.... Pinterest. Yup. I'm hooked. And I follow the Clos du Bois folks because they put up such darn pretty pictures! When they introduced Rouge, I could NOT get enough of the red dresses they pinned in celebration of the release. Shallow? Hah! I call it fashion forward. Or "fashion I wish I could afford". Either way....
After hearing about Rouge, it took me a bit to grab a bottle, but I'm so glad I did. As I have said many times, I am a big fan of red blends these days. But that also means that my red blend standards are pretty high, so you've got to bring an amazing blend to the table (or couch, depending on how the day as gone) to impress me. Well, this one did.
The nose was fragrant with strawberries, raspberries and touch of smokey oak. And the taste? WOW! Strawberry followed by a touch of oak and a teeny bit of cocoa. Just enough cocoa to make me very, very happy and conjure up images of chocolate dipped strawberries. It finishes with some soft, supple tannins. The whole feel of this wine is of deep red velvet. Such a smooth, easy to drink red. I'd recommend it for any occasion and am going to have to add it to my "favorite" list of red blends. I found this for $9.99 at a local store - so let's add it to the frugal sipping hall of fame, shall we?
