The different Simply Naked Wines represent an interesting presence – they are not given any time in oak, which provides imbibers with a much different flavor profile than they would normally expect from these different varietals. What results with the different Simply Naked Wines are efforts that put much more of a focus on the fruit flavors, rather than the woodsy or smoking hints that are typically present in a wine. The Merlot is particularly jammy, for example, while one can taste bits and hints of the grapes in both the Pinot Grigio and the Chardonnay.
The Cabernet Sauvignon is possibly the most interesting of these releases, with a much more complex flavor profile than one would usually experience from this varietal. While there is a heady fruit styling at the front of the wine, there are hints of florae and even of spice that come through before an individual finishes their bottle.
I feel that what is done with Simply Naked Wines is tremendously interesting, and that the company should look into doing the same process with a number of different varietals on a fairly regular basis. Any individual that is looking for a slightly different wine experience would do well to pick up any of the varietals currently on store shelves – Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are all available. Affordable, interesting, and with a set of varietals that will appease practically any fan of wine, Simply Naked Wines should simply be on an individual’s shelf or wine cellar.
