Goes Down Easy

My folks were in town this weekend, and while waiting to pick up Matt at the Metro, my Dad and I decided we wanted a glass of wine (who could blame us, we were going to be waiting for 3 hours before he’d need a ride! and it was a Friday afternoon!).  After hunting around in the basement, we picked the 2005 Michel Schlumberger Maison Rouge.  The Maison is a red Rhone blend, it has a screw cap closure, clocks in at 14.9% alcohol by volume, and retails for $20. Mine came in a club shipment, so I’m not really sure what I paid for it.

On the nose I found spice, herbs, earth, raspberries, spicy, pepper, and plum. In the mouth I found cherry, plum, raspberries, and red fruit.  This was one of those wines that I just didn’t notice how much of it I was drinking.  It went down really easy, and did seem to be a great table wine.  You didn’t have to think deeply about it, and it made a great accompaniment to my afternoon with my folks, whom I hadn’t seen in a while!
