2007 Prospect Winery Haynes Barn Merlot CabernetMy parents had a dinner party a couple of weeks ago and one of the guests brought this bottle of wine.  Now, I have only had a couple of Prospect wines, so I’m not entirely familiar with their lineup, but I have enjoyed the ones I have had.

This wine was no disappointment either.  It was fantastic.  It was a treat that there were only two of us drinking red wine at the dinner, so we got a good thorough tasting of it as well.

The wine was a thick dark red, and had an ever-so-subtle purple hue.

I had plums and cherries and a slight floral aroma.  Medium tannins and a very smooth finish.  A sweet and smooth wine.

I loved it.  And it wasn’t too heavy to sip without a meal.  I had mine both during and after dinner over a game of cards.  Perfect.
