The Label Project: Contest Clues for Wine 3

The Label Project: Wine 3 CluesThis week Another Wine Blog is participating in The Label Project, a global initiative to go beyond the label, uncover the true character of the wine inside the bottle, and the uniqueness of the region behind it. We, as well as, over 140 bloggers from 12 different countries were invited to participate.

Our wine adventure began with a well-known book and a cryptic e-mail. We then received 3 wines and corresponding clues designed to help us determine the region of the wine along with the varietal. We invited you, the readers, to play along, posting clues to Wine #1 and Wine #2.

Here are the clues and tasting notes for Wine #3. Can you guess the wines? Add your comments below or to the original post for your guess of the Varietal and the Producing Region for each of the three wines. Any U.S. resident who guesses all three correctly will have his or her name placed in a drawing to win one prize of a $50 gift certificate to a restaurant local to their area from Another Wine Blog!

Here are the Clues for Wine 3

Varietal Clues for Wine 3:

1. Leafy aromas with a hint of mint.
2. Ripe Cassis flavours. (<- Check the spelling, that’s ANOTHER clue.)
3. A firm texture with good persistence on the palate.

Regional Clues for Wine 3:

1. The terrain is completely flat.
2. Its subsoil is an ancient marine bed.
3. It has a maritime-influenced climate.

Tasting notes:

This light ruby red wine has notes of mint, eucalyptus and green pepper on the nose, with mint, dark fruit and notes of coffee grounds on the palate. Perfect malolactic fermentation creates a firm and structured finish. As was with Wine #2, this wine pairs well with Beehive “Barely Buzzed” Coffee Rubbed Cheese (rubbed with espresso and lavender).

To Enter Our Contest:

Please enter your guess of Varietal and Region for each of the three wines in the Comments below. Make sure you include both the name of the Varietal and the Producing Region. You must comment and provide your guess to each of three wines to be entered in a drawing to win the $50 restaurant gift certificate. Contest open to only U.S. Residents. Enter by close of business Friday, September 28, 2012.

Good Luck!

    Whether your having a little get together in the comfort of your own home or are planing a romantic evening with your significant other , everyone loves the feeling of wine in the picture. So why not buy an at home wine maker instead of continuously spending on a bottle? You can impress those in laws with this contraction, the girls will be jealous, and your friend will envy the fact you could have wine when ever you want. Take a look at the attached link and see if this could fit your lifestyle. here’s a link to one of the websites that offer a wine maker . And here is pretty much a blue print/ step by step on exactly HOW to make exquisite wine<a href=”” target=”_top”>Click Here!</a> . I hope this article caught your attention, and maybe changed the way you think about something as simple as wine. It can be a great experience to even be able to say you’ve made wine and maybe you could even bottle it up and start your own business? Think about it, if your selling wine from home that you made from scratch you could produce your own prices on them and make money that way. Some people may not want to spend as much on wine and come to you or you may have a monopoly over alcohol stores if there isn’t really any in the area. So really look at the big picture and possibilities if you make this purchase. Why not make a little extra cash along with what you may make at work, girls could maybe afford a trip to the spa while guys could maybe have that extra money to shell out on footbal/basketball tickets for your favorite team. See I’m looking at a great opportunity for you to make money for things you may want or even if you dont have enough money as it is these links could change your life just click and purchase although you may have to think about it and here’s one last link <a href=”” target=”_top”>Click Here!</a> . I hope you make the right choice or maybe even atleast consider the possibilities and the good time that can be shared with your own personally made glass of wine.
