Max Koch Uncorked

Wine-soaked adventures through a twisted life…

Max Koch and the FAT BOY RED (New Video)

It’s SO good to have friends who are winemakers. Especially when they send you 4 bottles of their beautiful stuff all the way from Georgia Wine Country!

I’ve mentioned the ever-awesome Doug Paul and his Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery before here on the blog. But now Doug’s REALLY gone n’ done it by Fed Ex-ing me a hearty red blend so delicious and unique, I had to go and make a dopey video about it. So click the pic of Doug and me below and GO!


WINE PAIRING: Here are the tasting notes Doug sent me for the Fat Boy Red, which I attempted to incorporate in the video… 

Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery proudly presents Fat Boy Red. It has become widely recognized as a fine “swine wine” that can be enjoyed with the high art of Southern smoked BBQ or sipped with a taste of dark chocolate on the side! “This is one husky wine. Fat Boy embodies everything we love in a big, chewy, massive wine, “ says Three Sisters’ co-founder Doug Paul. “It’s robust. It’s huge. It’s fat.” Fat Boy Red is a burly blend of the American winegrape cynthiana-norton and a wee bit of cabernet franc, merlot, and cabernet sauvignon. Fat Boy Red is aged in toasted American oak and vinted slightly off dry for a kiss of sweetness. Mercy…it’s a fat glass of wine!
