May 22 Wine Taste
Darren had the female wine theme going this evening with Seven Daughters Wine Makers Blend Red from California and Mad Houswife (which his wife was a couple weeks ago after too much wine) 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon. The Seven Daughters is a blend of 50% Merlot, 17% both Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, 11% Zinfandel, 2% of Syrah and Carignane and finally 1% Sangiovese. Definate dark berry flavor at first with just the right hint of vanilla. Silky smooth and preferred as the nights favorite. The Mad Housewife Cabernet was also a smooth wine with cherry flavor in the beginning and what tasted like plum towards the finish. The longer we drank it one in the group said its not a fruit flavor at the end but something else. In research it might be the mocha which makes sense. Both excellent selections once again this week.
