Two Wine Reviews in One

First, here’s a review of Yellow Tail Cabernet.  Blossom had just mentioned hers, so I didn’t want to be redundant.  I drank that one last week.  Here it is: It tastes like blackberries, spice like cinnamon, vanilla & oak finish.  It has a dark burgundy color and a smoothness to its flavor.  It tastes fruity but not sweet.

Tonight I have opened Ercavio Tempranillo Roble, a wine from Spain that I bought at Costco for $7-8.  When I poured this wine, my first thought was “purpley.”  It has a purple, metal topper on it, and 7 purple grapeprints on the label.  Its color is so dark red in the glass that it passes for purple.  It has a smooth taste and no after-bite.  It doesn’t taste sweet, but it’s a little fruity, mellow and a little oakey.  It is a young wine, aged in oak barrels for 6 months, and in the glass, it shows a thicker white line around it at the top.  

If you’re in a purpley mood, you would enjoy this wine.

    I haven’t tried the yellow tail cabernet. I really like their merlot and chardonet. I’ll have to try the Ercavio ’cause I love purple.

    I love you too.

    Damn! I miss being able to buy wine at Costco. I miss Trader Joe’s too.
