Day 6- Grandma's Blush around $13.00 of Fox Valley Winery

The Grandma's Blush was the second wine in January's sweet wine club. I did notenjoy this wine. The wine is described as a red table wine and it has the color and the consistency of a white zinfandel, however I did not find this wine sweet or fruity. I found the wine to be very acidic and maybe it was recently bottled and still has the bottle shock taste, where the flavors of the wine have not had a chance to come out. I don't know. I am surprised that this wine was such a disappointment because the other wines I have received from this winery, the niagra, the spice wine, and the late harvest zinfandel were all very good. I didn't pair it with food because their were no distinctive flavors to the wine, no strawberry, no raspberry, and so we just choked it down on its own. This will also be a 2 day wine since it was not very good, however tomorrow's wine we have had before and it is delicious.

  1. I don't know that this wine was really as bad as my lady makes it sound. No, it wasn't good, but I don't really think we were choking it down. It fell a little flat, and I too was disappointed, but "choking it down" is a little much. Maybe it does just need some "seasoning"!
