Nicki Minaj is known for many things. Her confident lyrics, unique style, bigger than life personality and even her unusually large backside, but I think it's fair to say that she's probably never been compared to wine. So what better opportunity than the release of her sophomore album "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded" which hits stores today? Hence, the pairing!
When deciding what the ultimate bottle of vino would be to compare with Nicki, I knew the 2009 Desparada "My Comforter" red blend from Santa Ynez and Monterey County was the perfect fit. The wine is made up of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Grenache, mimicking the singer's multiple personalities. In one moment she's imitating Barbie, the next it's her alter ego Roman or his English mother. The wine is big and bold but not overpowering, and the packaging is sexy yet creative. Sound a little like Nicki? What's more? The wine is dark garnet in color with aromas and flavors of coffee, black cherries, plum, raspberries, toasted oak and anise. Dark and mysterious, that describes the singer, too. And finally, only 89 cases were produced of this unique wine such as there aren't many out there that can compare to her highness! Cheers to her new album and getting a little taste of Nicki!
P.S. Scribbles of naked women are hidden in the artwork for the woman's dress on label. See if you can find it!
