I'll have Another of The Other

  I first heard about The Other Red Wine by Peirano Estate Vineyards, from a fellow wine blogger, D'Vine Wine Time.  I love this blog, well written, informative, funny and it seems we have similar taste (very important when reading wine reviews).  Awhile back she wrote a post titled, Liquid Artwork.  After reading her review I added The Other Red Blend to my list.

  I wasn't able to find it at my usual wine store, so it moved to the back burner.  Then one day, while strolling around a local strip mall I spotted a new wine shop.  I felt like a kid discovering a new toy store.  As I slowly walked up and down the aisles, swearing i was just going to look, I saw it.  Let me first say, the review I read, included a picture.  Once you see a picture of this bottle, it stays with you.  I knew right away when i saw it, that I had to get it.

How can you forget a label like this?
First sip, soft and smooth as silk!!  It's difficult to believe this is a blend.  According to their website it is "45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 10% Syrah"  I loved every drop of it.  Like I said, soft, easy to drink, not sweet, but not overly dry.  I think this would be the perfect wine for a dinner amongst friends that enjoy various types of wines.  Try it out and let me know your thoughts.

I just saw they have a white blend, I'll definitely have my eyes out for that!!
