Tuesday Tasting: Cultivate Wine Reds
The Feast 2009
$28.99 (Media Sample)
The Feast is a Cabernet-Merlot blend from Napa and Sonoma Valley grapes. It is an intensely dark wine with spicy aromas. Good mouthfeel with a softness on the palate. The first day I wasn’t sure if this was a wine I truly liked, but after a night open on the counter, it had really opened up and was a pleasure to drink. One of my favorite wines this year!

The Gambler Malbec 2010
$18.99 (Media Sample)
An Argentinian Malbec, from grapes grown in Mendoza (entire growing region if upwards of a half-mile above sea-level), this grape is blended with Bonarda to add texture and heft. I enjoyed it with food more than on its own, as it was a tad on the dry side for me personally, but my wife liked it just as much as The Feast. Very drinkable.
