t says:  g and I are always on the look-out for delicious wine – you know – the kind that you want buy over and over again because it’s just that good … and the kind that you can buy over and over again because it’s just that affordable.  Here’s our latest addition the cellar:


it’s pink!

What you see above is a wine that manages to balance some very nice flavors.  First up, you get a plusher-than-expected lightly-sweet red fruit (strawberry, cherry) – it’s very fleeting, but a referred to it as “lollipop”.  Then it gives way to a clean citrus zip that offsets the sweet (kinda like lemon juice vs. sugar), as it goes into a nice refreshing medium-length finish that beckons you to drink more.  This is not a “really sweet” wine, but there is indeed some residual sugar in there – but I think that’s what makes it so interesting (g and I normally can’t handle sweet wines: late harvest wines, dessert wines, ice wines, etc).  Is it “complex”?  Not really – but definitely very “fun”.  I’d be willing to bet that if brought to a dinner party, people will get over it’s pink-ness very fast and drink it down.  I don’t know how many liquor stores will stock this wine regularly (i.e. it can’t be found in PA), but if you do happen to be venturing into NJ sometime, swing by our fave, wineworks, and pick up a bottle (place the online order ahead of time – it’s a buck or two cheaper).  It’s a perfect color for Valentine’s day … but it’s a great flavor for any day … (well … maybe not steak day …)
