FIRST LOVE RED 2006
The Grade: AMAZING. The Mojo: Coming from First Drop Wines, a brand new project from South Eastern Australia and the former winemaker of St. Hallet and the former GM of Chain of Ponds (and current GM of Schild Estate), the First Love Red 2006 ($9.98 special) is an unique blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Barbera (yes, I said Barbera!) is medium-bodied, with rich, lush red berry fruit, slight hints of pepper and spice, and a long-lasting finish that is the perfect any-night-of-the-week red wine. The blend gives you a bit of Languedoc meets Piedmont for a delicious, fun red that is chock full of style.
