Cool Label….

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from Sort This Out Cellars.

Not so cool wine. Overall, I really enjoyed the wines I received from Sort This Out Cellars. However, this bottle was the exception to the rule.  We tried the 2005 Sort This Out Cellars Rockabilly Red with our burgers the other night.  Although it clocked in at 13.5% alcohol by volume, I found it be overwhelmingly alcoholic.  It had a real cork closure and retails for $25.

On the nose I found spice, cranberry, raisins, alcohol, chocolate, and cherries.  In the mouth I got dark berries, dark cherries, and sour fruit.  The tannins, acidity, and alcohol just didn’t seem in balance to me and it threw off the whole wine.
