Our new house wine!
This is my new favorite wine. We tried it a few weeks ago and I’m in love! This is an Australian wine, Taltarni 3 Monks. It’s a Cabernet/Merlot blend. If I remember correctly, this one is slightly over $20, but worth every penny. It’s been consistently rated 90 points or higher by several wine rating systems. In my, oh so humble, opinion, this wine is bold enough to enjoy with most red meats, but soft enough to also accompany white meats and vegetarian entrees.
My tasting notes:
- deep burgandy color, tints between red and purple
- very smooth, not too acidic
- floral/berry bouquet
- hint of vanilla, berry flavors, almost a strawberry undertone
And for the real notes?
“This wine is a deep ruby colour, with fresh purple tints. It displays classic black fruit and forest floor varietal characters complemented by soft, mocha oak flavours. The long, fruit driven palate and firm, ripe tannins make this an ideal wine for drinking now or for aging for two to three years.”
