2007 Ad Hoc Mix Master.
The description on the back is divine in its simplicity: Well Mixed Red.
‘What’s in it?’ you ask, turning the bottle round in your hands as if further annotation will magically appear.
Answer: who cares?
Having tried Larry Cherubino’s wines before (not to mention his glowing reputation) I know that a red blend at the price point of $17 at Dan Murphy’s is bound to turn out OK.
This wine has a great personality- a light, yet full bodied mouthful delivers sweet and long lasting fruity flavours, wrapped with a touch of spice. A good ‘quaffing’ wine as they say – one to be enjoyed across a range of different foods.
What I love most about this wine is that the label gives nothing away about it’s contents – the drinker will never know what grape varieties have gone into it’s making. I’m a big advocate of enjoying wines that resonate with your personal taste, and not letting the price or the wrapper influence your enjoyment (which they tend to do a lot of the time!)
So head down to your local Dan’s and pick up 1/2 a dozen of this mysterious delight.
