Geja's Big Bold Red, 2012

"A person with increasing knowledge and sensory education may derive infinite enjoyment from wine."  - Ernest Hemingway
Geja's Big Bold Red, comes to us from California. A private reserve, and grown out of a world-famous vineyard guarantees that you will experience over 40 years of wine making expertise with each sip. This hard to fine vintage is of the rare red blend (a blend of unusual, or rarely seen blends of grapes) is a special treat when you happen to come upon it. The average price is around $15 and is typically more affordable as well as available through one or more of the featured wine delivery services that are highlighted in this blog. 
2012 Geja’s Big Bold Red  

In the mean time what does this flavorful wine mean for you the wine lover? Well, it brings you a bold, yet light, dry wine. The first sip leaves your tongue tantalized and right on the edge of sensory overload. 
A rich claret color. At first you sense a smooth, caramel, buttery essence, it the bouquet, then it quickly moves into a dry, dark cherry swirl on the palette finishing with a burst of earthy florals. 
(Steve's response: ¨It isn't like many of the other reds that we have had, it is like being covered with a warm blanket, that cozy feeling, when you just settle in.)
Pairing: Personally, I believe this would be perfect with an intense French bread, a variety of cheeses, followed up with high quality dark chocolate. Is it possible that there is a connection between this Bold Red and the world-famous Geja's Fondue Restaurant in Lincoln Park, Chicago Illinois?
Be ready to have your senses awakened and your body, mind and spirit, blanketed in comfort as Geja's Big Bold Red lingers on your tongue and fills up your senses in a very dynamic way.
