The Devil Made Me Do It!

August 17, 2012

With being one of the newest members of the Wine Sense family, I have been reluctant to post a blog- but my customers have convinced me that I should- so here we go!

Let me begin by talking about two of my favorite 4 week wine kits…Vintners Reserve Diablo Rojo and Angel Blanco.

The Diablo Rojo (or Red Devil) is an excellent medium bodied wine with a touch of sweetness.  It has the smoothness of the merlot grape, a touch of oakiness and ends on a soft, sweet note.  The only bad part of this wine is, after one glass, you want another…  but then of course- you can always blame it on the Devil!

All of my customers to whom I have recommended this wine have become fans of the Red Devil!

The Diablo Rojo enhances the flavor of barbecued steak or pork ribs.  It would be a great compliment to any rich tomato sauce dishes, but the real joy comes from consuming this pleasant wine with dark chocolate.

Now for the real surprise, the Angel Blanco (or White Angel). This wine is a blend of Muscat, Chardonnay and Riesling.  I’m not normally a fan of fruity tasting wine and when I tasted a very young bottle, I definitely wondered if this wine with a melon/pear taste was for me.  But what a surprise after 4 or 5 months in the bottle.  What a change!  The friendly fruitiness of it’s youth has faded and the 3 grapes blend into a wine with a very pleasant smooth, complex and slightly sweet flavor!

The Angel Blanco was a great compliment  to lobster tails with garlic butter, but was equally at home with the pickerel fried in garlic butter and homemade french fries sprinkled with seasoning salt.

I definitely would recommend enjoying both of these wine young- but be patient with either and they will reward you with an excellent wine experience.

These are only two of the wonderful wine kits that we offer you- our customers- under the brand name Vintners Reserve by Wine Expert available only at WINESENSE IN MANITOBA.

Cheers from the West side of Manitoba,

Vic, Manager (Wine Sense Brandon)

p.s. Both of these wines are on sale until September 1st, 2012!
