Bink Merlot 2003Posted: November 29, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Wine | Leave a comment »
I “won” this wine at a silent auction a couple of years ago (along with three other Bink bottles) and decided to bring it to Thanksgiving dinner. Most of the other wines I have are cabs, and I thought they’d be both too hearty for the turkey and the other guests. It was a good choice. The wine was very good, hearty yet crisp, well balanced, perhaps with a little bit too much alcohol for my taste (but that may have been the result of less than optimal storing conditions) but all in all a mature and refined wine. It went well with the turkey and by itself, and definitely called for a second glass. I’m looking forward to enjoying the other Bink wines I still have around.
