Tecumseh Shawnee Chief quotes “A single twig breaks, but the bundle of twigs is strong.” It’s like Twigs Wine knew what they were doing when they sent me not one but THREE Twigs wines to try out! They are so wise!

Wine made with Organic grapes
Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Sometimes organic just makes you feel that much better about drinking tons of wine! Organic grapes are grown in harmony with nature! It’s basically a wine that is produced and processed without the use of chemicals that can harm you! I like that!
This wine comes to us all the way from Mendoza, Argentina and it’s priced around $15 a bottle. It’s grown and harvested just like the old days and this (in my mind) is what I love about wines. You get some tradition in every bottle!
Twigs Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva – has an intense ruby red. Went fabulously with my grilled tenderloin. It’s a Peppery grape but a full bodied wine with a smooth finish. I’m impressed with this one! I was also going to say that it was red with some violet hues to it (which went great in my Waterford wine glass!) but I thought you might find that a bit pretentious…
Twigs Merlot Reserva – Deeper red than the Cabernet Sauvignon, but still had some great fruitiness when I took my first sip! It’s like drinking a spicy grape but comes out with a smooth finish as well!
Twigs Malbec Reserva – I was having a hard time putting my taste buds around this for an easy way to explain it to everyone! I’ll try. It’s an earthy taste and someone in another review indicated hints of lavender. I’m a lavender freak so because they said that … now I’m tasting that too! It’s a very nice blend. The site indicates aromas of raspberry tart and pencil shavings. I’ve never eaten pencil shavings, so you are on your own with that one! I do agree with Raspberry tart and definitely some chocolate. Almonds make an appearance and it finishes out nicely with some juicy grapeness!
Out of the three wines, you won’t be disappointed in any of them and it probably will come down to your personal preference which you prefer. I did like the Malbec and would definitely purchase the Cabernet Sauvignon again for my red meat dinners … it’s a perfect companion and it will go great with that summer BBQ!
So — let me ask you! Have you tried either of these three wines? What are your thoughts — favorites?
