Wine Blogging

I'm not really into wine blogging, but it works for Doug, so I thought I'd give it a try. The Atomizer of Fraters Libertas has graciously agreed to help me since I am a novice and he is wise in the ways of alcohol. My wine for today is Fetzer 2003 Valley Oaks Merlot.

On first impression, Valley Oaks has a lovely dark color, like the Vikings home jerseys look when my upstairs TV is on the fritz. Mild flavor of cherry and vanilla and other additives that taste better in Coca-Cola. The finish lingers nicely.

A second taste reveals the strong flavor of potash. Very unusual and none too pleasant. Dammit Atomizer! You ashed your cigarette in my wine! This review is over.
