2010 Caricature Red Wine Review

Wine of the Day: 2010 Caricature Red Wine

As an educated consumer, I try not to read too much into labeling (after all, it's often naught but a marketing ploy) but was nonetheless intrigued by the 2010 Caricature Red Wine's ($15) claim to be a "wine of character with great legs." While from the outset that statement may seem glib, the LangeTwins Family Winery wasn't joking around: we unanimously agreed that this Cabernet Sauvignon-Zinfandel blend possessed great "legs" and a silky smooth mouthfeel to boot.

I don't generally find big reds to be very drinkable on their own, and prefer to enjoy them with a meal, but was surprised by how smoothly the sips went down, despite Caricature's earthy flavor profile and 14.2 percent alcohol content. Perhaps it was due to a case of the Tuesdays (far more vicious that the Mondays, one might argue), but the wine's velvety texture largely contributed to our copious consumption. Still, I'm pretty sure this bottle would be equally appropriate enjoyed under celebratory circumstances, whether sipped solo or enjoyed as part of a sumptuous meal with friends.
