As frequent visitors will note, I usually buy $10 and under bottles of wine. Â This one was $15.99 after QFC club card discount. Â I felt I owe something to Sokol Blosser for putting up with us. Â Some time ago I was part of a Clown Wine Tour – that is to say – two limos full of people dressed as clowns “tasting” wine. Â They knew two limos were coming. Â They didn’t know two limos of clowns were coming.
On the whole, the were good sports about the invasion and I believe everyone had fun, though we didn’t buy much wine on that tour.
Good news – this bottle here deserves a good review on it’s own merits. Â It’s what I like in a red wine. Â Strong meaty flavor. Â Some heft, like it would hold it’s own in a bar fight with a salami and olive plate. Â A single sip fills your mouth with tasty stuff. Â This is wine, not red-colored tap water. Â Yep, this is how I like it.
