When we taste or smell something, an experience is created that is unique to each of us. Every person perceives taste and smell differently and then translates that into a flavor and an experience that can be quite pleasant, or not. I like wines that are lighter, smoother, and have a more berry taste profile, something easy to drink. The word I use for this flavor profile is elegance. My request was met with Janis’ Choice, an exquisite red blend that unfolds hints of cherries and raspberries but then shows more complexity and depth with spices and peppers derived from the small amount of Zinfandel. This elegant red blend is 60% Barbera, 30% Grenache, and 10% Zinfandel. I believe you will enjoy Janis’ Choice when sitting with friends, just catching up on the latest news, or serving it with a simple pasta or chicken dinner.
