My Review: This wine was really interesting and I’m not completely sure how I feel about it. It was a really pretty dark red color – probably because it is a Merlot wine with added flavor, and it smelled amazing. It smelled like chocolate and strawberries and cherries, and the sweetness of the chocolate cut the normal earthly tones that I don’t like. But when I tasted it, the chocolate kind of overwhelmed a lot of other flavors. It actually tasted like chocolate with a hint of red wine instead of Merlot with a hint of chocolate like I expected. It was nice, but I don’t think I’ll be trying it again.
I didn’t eat anything with this wine, and I honestly can’t imagine what I would want to eat with it. It is an experience all on its own.
