Wine Wednesday | Bodacious Red Blend

1:28 Bodacious 2

This weeks Wine Wednesday is Bodacious 2014 from Jon Nathaniel Wines in Napa Valley. I was actually given this bottle as a gift from a colleague and was eager to try it. It retails for $60. This is a much higher price point then I usually go for but the wine was great and I think worth the price. This would be a good bottle to gift to an older family member or friend that appreciates fine wine. I actually often find myself in search of a good bottle of wine that is not $20 to give as gifts so I was happy to find this. Now that I am in my 30’s I feel like brining a bottle of $3 Chuck to a gathering is unacceptable 🙂

I typically do not gravitate to red wines and would chose white if given the choice, but I really did like this red. It is a blend with Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc. I got a lot of ripe and juicy fruits on the front end and found it to be very approachable, easy drinking, food-friendly wine.

Paired with filet mignon, Brussels sprouts and couscous.
