Day 134-Purple Passion by the Village Vintner for $13.99 per bottle
This fruit wine jumps on the Acai bandwagon and is a blend of intense Acai fruit, raspberries with a splash of red wine according to the vintner. We found this wine to be very similar to the Blue Moon and the Pom a Berry that we like from the Village Vintner. This is very good summer wine, doesn't taste like what one would expect wine to taste like, it is sweet very fruity like a juice wine. Purple Passion is not a food wine, but a great summer sipper, served well chilled playing horseshoes, picnicing, at any barbecue. This wine is only 8% alcohol so you can over indulge a little on those nice summer evenings without forgetting the entire evening. My better half really liked this wine and gave a bottle to his father for his birthday.
