A 5 varietal wine during Christmas turned wine for this winter season and what has been making these chilly days and nights somewhat tolerable!
The Monster Red Blend from Ninety+ Cellars is the most heavenly Monster I have ever encountered. This impeccable red wine is made with 5 classic grapes; 30% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot, and 10% Malbec. Is that not the most incredible Monster you’ve ever seen (and tasted)! The gorgeous dark ruby color of this wine sets the scene for a beautifully plated and very indulgent night. Flavors of coffee, dark fruits, dark chocolate with very nice tannins at the finish make this wine a very powerful monster yet ‘impressively well poised’ (could not have said it better)! I was introduced to this wine by Mr. 90+ himself and my first try was at the Christmas dinner table where we all were with ‘mouths dropped’ when pairing the wine with a juicy rib roast (and saved what was left for dessert ;)).
Since then I have been using this wine to get me through these snow storms and relive that incredible moment when this wine first hit my lips. Pure genius! Now, if only we knew what winery in Columbia Valley, WA this came from???
This is a must for the wine fridge and I have already stocked up. A staple for a spectacular dinner party and good to have on hand!
