N/V Black Star Farms Red House Red

Black Star was a good place and we grabbed this one because our sample in the tasting room screamed QPR.

I get some distinct cola notes on this nose which wins me over immediately.

Some earthy and funky notes with some cherry and raspberry – it's a soft wine and it could use some more backbone but I believe they're striving for an easy quaffable pizza wine and this more than succeeds.

The finish fades but the sour cherry notes linger with some earthiness.

When one thinks of a non-vintage table wine most people automatically assume it's going to be crap – rest assured this one is certainly solid and well worth the $11 pricetag.
