Episode 5: Happy Hallowine!

The first Wine Soaked Halloween Episode! Featuring:

  • Pure Evil Chard… $10.99… an obvious example of over MLF treatment, as well as “wood chips” opposed to quality oak barrels, the fruit and butter is overwhelming and flat. However the 14 + alcohol kicks the party into gear. I will say it’s significantly better with melon pop-rocks. Makes it sooooo much better.
  • Evil Cab Sav… $10.99…… This is a Cab from S. East Australia… it is a cooler climate, so this Cab is different then what we think of as Cabs, it has bright notes or cranberry, and raspberry, high acidity and low tannin. It is opposite of the Cabs we know from Bordeaux & Napa. It will not blow your socks off, but it will get the job done.
  • Ghost Pines… $22.99… This Cab is a delectable blend of Napa and Sonoma fruit fermented in new french Oak, and it shows. There are lovely elegant layers of black cherry, tobacco, leather, and a touch of eucalyptus on the nose, and it is followed by a dry smooth toasty pallet. It is hauntingly good!
