Day 32-Pom-a Berry by the Village Vintner for $13.99

This was the wine of the month for February 2009 for the sweet/fruit wine club. We have had this wine before, in fact, it was one of the first wines we ever tried and bought when we went tasting at this winery in December 2009. "The Village Vintner's Pom a Berry is a red wine that brings together juicy and sweet flavors of wild berries and the rich and crisp notes of orchard fresh pomegranates. Combined with the rich flavors of Zinfandel, this delicious elixir is best enjoyed chilled." This winery does not use only fruit like Lynfred which just uses 100% fruit. This winery gets its juices from all over the United States and then blends the juices. The wine tastes a lot like juice and my better half, now my fiance, loves this wine. It is low and alcohol content at 7.5% and low in sulfites. This is a wine that you would start a person who does not like wine. I can't taste the zinfandel in this wine and would think most people would think this is more juice than wine, but it is very easy drinking and is very reasonably priced. I think this winery blends fruits with wines very well, we have never been disappointed with their fruit sweet wines.

  1. My better half must have been watching LOST with me too much if she thinks that she tried this wine in December 2009, or maybe she had one bottle too many. Anyway, I seem to remember it as more 2008. That said, I thought that this was a very mellow, very pleasant wine to drink and would like this nicely chilled on a hot summer day. Its good stuff Mainard!
