Frog Wine Part 2 In Key West

I cannot let this little "Ribet Red" pass us by! Arrogant Frog "Ribet Red" 2004 is a blend of 55% cabernet and 45% merlot from the Languedoc Region of Southern France. It has really nice intense fruity aromas that evolve smoothly in your mouth. Not heavily tannic, but enough to give it some character. It has that wonderful screw cap top that I am starting to enjoy. It is nice right out of the bottle into your glass and, with a few swirls (I like that word!), you can watch that purple liquid just dance! It is very food friendly, as we served it with grilled steaks and it was very satisfying.

I'm loving the Arrogant Frog label. Heh.

I've had that twice. I have to admit that I don't enjoy it on its own but it's better with food. I love the label though :-)
