Olde English Blackberry Wine by Vetro Winery for around $10.00
This winery makes a lot of their fruit wines in a semi-dry style, and this is no different. This winery as I have said previously is totally cute and this wine is no different. The wine is actually dedicated to their pet, an English Setter who is pictured on the back of the label. I found this wine to be a nice change to a typical blackberry wine, the wine is lighter, not syrupy or overly sweet like others. This wine is pure blackberry with 9lbs of fruit going into every bottle without the flavor being too sweet and not too tart. I paired this wine with chicken and the wine is too fruity for chicken, best on its own or with dark chocolate, with a milk chocolate not good wine is not sweet enough.
