Eagle Eye Red Blend Napa Valley Voluptuous 2007
This is a good pick for wine drinkers that want to get the full mouth feel of robust winemaking style, but it's also pleasantly light bodied. It's not overpowering and will compliment food that's hearty - as well as lighter fair. There's some magic to the blend here.Add winemaker's notes

Voluptuous is defined by Webster as derived from gratification of the senses, sensuously delightful, full and shapely with indulgences in luxury, pleasure and sensuous enjoyment. This is what Eagle Eye Voluptuous does to your taste buds. ripe red fruit, soft tannins and fruit forward characterize that Eagle Eye style.
The six grape varietals in this wine is what makes it truly unique, giving the wine an impressive arsenal of aromas and flavors that are surprisingly well balanced. I detected aromas of cherry reduction, with some raspberries and just the right amount of oak to smooth out the fruit. The smell was delicious! The taste gave way to some vanilla, cola and slight dark chocolate tones with a long gentle finish. My favorite wine from Eagle Eye Wines so far!
This was a tasting panel favorite. On the nose, I picked up Coca-cola with Lemon (a local delight you can get at the Iceburg here in Walla Walla), plus cinnamon, smoke and fig. The flavors are predominantly spicy with a touch of nice raspberry flavors and dark chocolate. The finish is surprisingly a mirror reflection of the taste - nice to have a wine stay the same from start to finish! This wine is well-balanced while still being light-bodied, so you can serve this with a variety of foods. My recommendation would be something savory! The spice component with this wine would provide a nice counterpoint to savory meat dish.
