Wine Review: 2011 Boekenhoutskloof ‘The Wolftrap’ Red

No one believes me about bacon wine, so here it is. Seriously. Now, this review mentions smoke flavour, but when I bought my bottle, it was advertised in the store as tasting of “dark berries, plums and smokey bacon”. Which it totally did.

I drank it while watching Sharknado. Which I will totally go to the theatres to see if they actually swing that deal–I haven’t laughed hard enough to get hiccups in a long time.

On a more sober note (but not very), I have seen the cover and it is FINE!!!! Fine like Charlie Hunnam in a shower scene. I lucked out totally when I got April Martinez for my cover art. Sexy, classy and oh, so Glyn.

Nope. Big reveal is a little ways away yet, but not too long. And, I’ll be holding a couple of giveaways, one through the blog here and one through Joyfully Jay, to make up for it in the time before Bite Me Tender releases. So stay tuned!

Oh, don’t forget the Goodreads freebie is up here! It’s a love story and a journey back from heartache, wrapped around a smutfest. And, yes, I did put spaces in this post, but will WordPress put them in? Nooooo! Bad WordPress.

I must say the great flavors are back and this is an impressive wine again! This wine has a very vivid red color and purplish on the edges. The nose had a nice aroma of dark berry, violets, smoke, and a bit of funk…. which is usually a good thing. (for us anyway). On the palate, it was full bodied, silky, and a feeling of some nice tannins. Flavors of black currants, dried…
