Day 75-Rhubarb by Lynfred Winery for $11 or under
This wine is the color of a watermelon Jolly Rancher and tastes like one too. This wine is made from 100% Crimson Rhubarb as all their fruits wine are at Lynfred. The wine is served very chilled and is tart and sweet. We finished off the bottle in one evening because the wine was sweet enough for my better half, but not with out the balance of the tartness which I really liked. We have tried the Rhubarb at Coopers Hawk Winery and at the Village Vintner and like all three. This wine is a tad thicker than your average wine with some legs. It is because I found this wine to be a tad heavier that I would not drink a lot of it at one time, but a couple of glasses seems to be a nice dessert and fun drinking wine. I would bring it to a summer party and it is cheap enough to bring a couple of bottles, people would just need to get over that it is rhubarb.
