Have you ever dated brothers? Worn leather pants to a wedding? Paired white wine with red meat? Then you just might be a mischief maker. You keep us up after bedtime on a school night. You change your hair color like most people change their socks. You make lives more complicated, but less boring. You'll be in the stories we tell our grandchildren. You love trouble. And we love you.
How does it taste? Yum! Pepper and cherries. It has a beautiful garnet coloring and has a lingering finish of cocoa and spices. I mentioned that I like the full bodied wines to pair with food. Something with less characteristics is still good...to me, for sipping without food. Tonight I made some BBQ ribs, corn on the cob and fresh fruit salad and I wanted to test the complexities of this wine against the fair. On it's own it's very tasty and filling. I think that's why I like the lighter bodied wines for just drinking. If I'm not eating, I don't want to feel stuffed...after a couple glasses of wine.
The wine faired well with the ribs, nothing special, the sauce may have overpowered. I really enjoyed this Cabernet with the salad. Romaine, tomatoes, yellow pepper, bacon and a balsamic vinaigrette. They complimented each other nicely. The Dove Peanut Butter and chocolate I had for dessert also paired well with Middle Sister's Mischief Maker.
This is a company up-to-date with computers and marketing. They have their own blog where each of the wines (characters) talk about their lives. It's a good read and a fun way to learn about wines and their processes.
$10.99 is a reasonable price for such a full bodied wine and I will definitely purchase this again. I'm looking forward to trying their other varietals.
