Tasting- Velvet Crush Red Blend


Name: Velvet Crush Red Blend

Variety: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petite Sirah

Region: California

Country: USA

Year: 2013

Price: $18

Shop Notes: Velvety smooth texture just like its name. Soft tannins and lush dark fruit character. Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah bring backbone and character, while the Merlot balances out the blend for a soft, smooth texture.

My Notes: I thought the nose was generally unpleasant, maybe like feet? I also felt it was earthy yet fruity. The body was dry but too sweet and with too much tannin.

I did not have this with food.
