I made a Cauldron full of Devilish Dip and brought Curious Beast Blood Red Wine.
I bought the wine because of the cool packaging, but was pleasantly surprised at how great this wine tasted. It was smooth on its own, as well as with our appetizers. I will definitely be buying this one again. I might just find it some where cheaper than at the Liquor Barn (I paid $21).
Following are the tasters notes...
Curious Beasts will certainly pique your visual interest, the label perfectly gothic and bloody looking. This wrapped wine (shown in photo without the paper wrapping) is a red blend that offers black fruits, chocolate, spiced plums and leather with savoury undertones. The palate follows suit it's supple and has good freshness - cherry, black plum flavours with oodles of chocolate and blackberry trailing on the finish. It will pair with dark chocolate (spiked with chilies would be great) or serve with grilled meats or chili con mole.
