The Big Red Monster Red Wine - $12


MK and I had this wine last night while we watched Frost/Nixon and snacked on Parmigiano-Reggiano, Gouda, Brie, multi-grain crackers, apples, and of course, truffle oil popcorn.

This was a really big red wine. Of course everyone notices the over-the-top label, which in my opinion is marketing genius. I bought this wine at Whole Foods because the label was so fun, and I thought that MK would really like it! According to several sites on the internet, the wine is made by NV and is a blend of Zin and Syrah.

Aroma - dark chocolate and dark fruit
Taste - dark fruit and tobacco with a dry finish

MK noticed that the aroma really opened up after we let the wine breathe about an hour. I'd get this again - would be curious to try it with dinner.
