Melisa’s Christmas Stocking Stuffer Wine Ideas…

Trouble Maker

Dear Enotecans,

Chimay Day is tonight!  The website was incorrectly reporting no tickets available earlier this week and late last week.  If you want to come, there are some tickets available.  Read more about it here.

Looking for some fun Christmas wine gifts?  Melisa noticed that there are several bottles of wine that would be funny or unique coming as a gift.  Check out these wine names, come on down to Enoteca to pick up some gifts!  We have pretty gift bags too, so you can complete the whole job before you leave!

Do you know anyone that needs a bottle of wine called Troublemaker?  How about Royal Bitch?  Whispering Angel?  Sensual… there’s a red and white version of this.  One called Bad Attitude, Cowgirl Cab, Shameless Hussy, and the Pazzo “Call me Crazy”!

Here are notes on a couple of them, come down to see the rest and find a fun gift!

Trouble Maker Red

Robust aromas of black cherry and licorice evolve into a stronger bouquet reminiscent of smoked meats. Black cherry and ripe raspberry notes on the palate along with hints of leather and cocoa. Bright acidity lends to a rich mouthfeel. A well balanced wine that’s slightly hot when first opened but settles down after a few minutes of breathing. A quality wine at a great price!

55% Syrah, 12% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 5% Petite Sirah

Nodland Bad Attitude

90 Points Wine Enthusiast

This powerful locally made wine over delivers! It’s made from grapes from Ash Hollow, Pepperbridge, and Seven Hills Vineyards. Three top shelf wine growing vineyards in Walla Walla.

It’s a blend of Walla Walla Merlot from these three top vineyards, blended with Malbec and small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Cherries, blueberries, spice and a hint of vanilla.

Paul Greguitt from Wine Enthusiast says:

Fragrant and soft, with incense and cinnamon in the nose and the mouth. The fruit is dark–– blackberry and black cherry––and the tannins lightly grainy. A nice toasty finish and a lick of espresso firm it up through the finish.

Merlot and Malbec primarily, some Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot
