There’s Always a Good Time for Wine!

Hello, hello, hello!

How’s everyone making out so far this week?

I don’t know about ya’ll but it’s been a hectic few days and I am ready for a long vacation. . . or glass of wine!

Whichever comes first! LOL

Well, as promised I am here to share my latest wine review, and again I want to apologize for my absence. I am seriously looking forward to 2020 and the things I’ll be introducing to you guys!

The wine reviews will be coming, the book reviews still flowing, and as promised, those videos will be launching soon!

That, and much more!

But, let’s revert back to what we’re here for! This wine review. As I mentioned in my last entry, today’s review is on wine Seven Deadly Red 2016. This is one of the many wines I picked up simply because the bottle was so sexy! LOL

Now, it wasn’t planned for me to open this bottle when I did, but I was making steak and smothered potatoes, and my wife took it upon herself to stick it in the fridge. So, me being a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, I took this as a sign that I’m supposed to be drinking this bottle tonight!

And I’m low key glad I did.

So, Seven Deadly Red 2016 is obviously a red wine, so before drinking it, I let it air out for a moment. But when I say a moment, I mean like two minutes because my food was done and I was ready to enjoy! I mention this because I am sure if I would’ve given it a little more time, it probably would’ve given it a different flavor. Not that I was disappointed.

Let me get into it!

So, I prefer to sip my wine before eating cause I am genuinely starting to realize the affects food has on the wines we chose to drink.

The aroma of the wine did indicate it was going to be sweet. It was a strong berry scent, though I couldn’t pin point exactly what kind. I gave it a quick swirl around my glass and then took a sip.

So, it wasn’t super sweet, but it wasn’t tart either. It was more of a juicy like wine, and left a lingering taste on my tongue. I wasn’t 100% sold on it until I ate a piece of my steak and then took another sip.

Now, I don’t know if you guys remember my August 15th entry where I reviewed the Blackstone Merlot, but I also tried this wine with a steak and potatoes as well. I’m mentioning this because I had the same affect with the Seven Deadly Red, as I did the Merlot.

I could taste a hint of spice tasting the wine again after eating some of my steak. It was amazing! It’s definitely a wine I recommend new red wine drinkers to try, just make sure to air it out properly, and pair this bottle with the foods that would go best with it!

This wine is said its best paired with meatloaf, lasagna, or a baked ham. My wife and I are doing our own Thanksgiving this year, so I think this bottle will be invited to our dinner that day. I am very interested in seeing how it tastes with a baked ham.

Well, it’s my least favorite part of my blog, the end! LOL

But as always, I am grateful you guys came and joined me today! For those celebrating Thanksgiving, I challenge you to try adding a bottle of wine to your menu!

Check and see which wines go well with your gumbo, turkey, stuffing, etc. Let me know what you select, and definitely let me know what it tastes like!

If you try Seven Deadly Red 2016, let me know what you thought of it!

Talk to you guys soon! Happy Holidays!!
