Day 55-Pink Ribbon Sweet Table Wine by August Hill for $10.45
This wine is the same wine as the Sweet Catawba at August Hill except it is 50 cents more due to $1 dollar donation to non-profit groups that support the fight against breast cancer. This wine is a similar color to the Desert Rose and the First Blush, and I think all the wines incorporate the Catawba grape, however this is the sweetest wine by far of the bunch. The vintner describes this wine as a light, sweet, and fruity blush wine that pairs well with light fish dishes, cheese and crackers, or friends who just want to sip and relax. This is not the first time we have had this wine, in fact we have given this wine as a gift, and drank 1-2 bottles before yesterday. It is a simple wine that non-wine drinkers can enjoy and does make you thirsty like the other blush wines that we tried today. It is only 9% alcohol so this is good one for an apertif and/or you summer parties. I find it too sweet to drink a lot of, however, my better half thinks this is juice and can drink it like it Welch's. However, in terms of Catawba wine's this may be one of the best so far.
