2001 Weinert Carrascal

Posted on September 13, 2009

You know, sometimes I think wine flavor descriptions are totally arbitrary. On my wine tour last weekend, they were using phrases like “honeyed vanilla tobacco” and “chocolate-covered cherry.” Ugh. If you find a red wine, that actually tastes like vanilla tobacco, buy me a bottle.

Now, I bring this up because this wine actually mentions and tastes like chocolate. Yum! Its a dark, mysterious, and sensual wine; jazz in an alley. Sort of bitter, but it grows on you. Vino de Nosferatu….
