Like I mentioned before in my Chardonnay post, we received some bottles for a group review, which is always fun. Not many people turn you down when you ask them if they would like to come over and taste some wine with you.
This time we tasted flipflip Wines, Merlot. I’ll be honest; I am not terribly big on Merlot wines. I like them, but I prefer Cabernet Sauvignon, The good news is that Merlot is my husband’s favorite red, as well as my parents.
My first thought was that this was a very light tasting Merlot, making this an incredibly easy to drink wine. It was not overwhelming like some Merlots can be and had a great finish. Everyone, especially my parents, were really impressed with it. Everyone kept commenting on how clever the back label was. If you are not familiar with my flipflop Wine reviews, then you probably missed when I posted that each bottle has a fun label on the back as a little ‘cheat sheet.’ I use it when meal planning or when I want to fake that I know what I’m talking about. ;)
I would suggest if you were to host a party or have people over for dinner, this would be a great wine to invest it. It is a very enjoyable wine to drink. Plus, it’s only $7 a bottle! So not only will your guests be impressed, but they will be jealous of the fact you found a wine at an incredible bargain (that is if of course..you want to share your secret.)
As if this wine wasn’t great enough, check out how they are giving back.
Flipflop Wines has partnered with Soles4Souls. A charity that collects new shoes to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and collects used shoes to support micro-business efforts to eradicate poverty. flipflop wines will provide a pair of shoes up to $100,000.
