flipflop wines Review Round 2...

We recently had the chance to review a merlot and a cabernet sauvignon from flipflop wines.

About flipflop wines:
"With flipflop wines, we have embraced the movement toward individualistic expression, instead of manufacturing wines into some cookie-cutter style that’s all the rage. Our goal is to craft expressive, well-balanced wines that evoke just what the grapes inside intended, without being over-wrought or over-explained, and that can be enjoyed at any occasion."
Appellation: California
Tastes like: Full-bodied, Cabernet Sauvignon with blackberry fruit, dark cherries and a long, lingering finish.
It is full of: Black pepper notes and berry aromas
Eat with: New York strip steak, spinach ravioli or Portobello mushrooms
Serve: Room temperature
Appellation: California
Tastes like: Medium-bodied, silky Merlot with plum and mocha notes, soft tannins and a balanced, luscious finish.
Eat with: Texas chili, black & blue sliders, cheddar cheese broccoli or your favorite tacos
Serve: Room temperature

What we thought: Yummy-licious!!  This time around we got to try two reds from flipflop wines.  First up was the Cabernet Sauvignon, which is B's favorite kind of wine.  He said he was pleasantly surprised by the deliciousness of this particular bottle.  You can definitely taste the spicy black pepper notes in this one (which we loved) and it was the perfect pairing for a nice, juicy steak dinner!  The Merlot was equally tasty with it's slightly fruity flavors.  It was delicious with burgers fresh off the grill...yep, we don't need a super special meal to enjoy a bottle of wine around here:)  I love that these flipflop wines go so well with grilled foods because our grill is employed year round here...at least 3 times a week.  flipflop wines has a fantastic variety of affordable wines, perfect for a special dinner or a backyard BBQ...love the versatility!  ABCD Diaries gives flipflop wines another A+!
