2008 Herding Cats Merlot/Pinotage: A wine you serve when you want people to leave your house

nov. 20, 2010: we picked this south african up at schnucks on north green river. it was the name that got us, and the low price ($6.99). but do not, under any circumstances, confuse this wine with something you'd actually choose to drink. this was unfortunate since the nose was encouraging -- it was earthy and pleasant. but drinking this was like stuffing a wet and moldy dishtowel into your mouth. we decanted it for about an hour, but there was still no improvement. 13.5 percent alcohol.
