Wine Reviews #13

Ropiteau, Vin De Pays D’Oc, Pinot Noir, 2007, France. $8.99. They say: Cherry and strawberry fruit flavors. We say: very fruity, light, tasty, finishes a little minerally. Buy again: yes.

Plungerhead, Old Vine Zinfandel, 2007, Lodi. $15.99. Yes, another wine we bought purely for the label. As Monty Python fans, how could we resist? They say: Fresh crushed berreis perfectly laced between a core of oak and cinnamon spice with notes of white pepper and sweet plum We say: we would say everything they said if we could actually talk that eloquently. But we can’t so we say, yes! Yes! Yes! Excellent. Buy again: Yes!

    Pam, I always look forward to your wine reviews and make notes for future purchases. A tough job you have but someone has to do it, right? Enjoy your weekend and stay warm.

    Ha! That creeps me out a little, but it sounds delicious!
    BTW, we tried the black-eyed peas & collards last night. Fantastic! We had to force ourselves to leave some for today!

    I love the Plungerhead label, too. I’ll have to write that one down as being gift-worthy for friends.

    Do you know how to get the labels off without ruining them?

    Plungerhead is excellent. We drink mostly dry Zins, and this is always a go to… dESERVES A BETTER NAME, AS i BET MOST OF US FIRST TRIED IT JUST BECAUSE OF THE LABEL. Wonder if anyone but funny label people take it serious

    I love you wine reviews and will definitely look for this when I’m at the store this week. I’m trying to cut back to one glass of wine each day and am eager to try new vintages. Love your enthusiasm for this wine! :)

    Yes, I buy wine for the labels too. I know a good image when I see one, wine knowledge…not so much. So, I shall look forward to your wine review in the future.

    I love looking at the wine labels. Some are designed so well and some are awful, just black and white horrible designs. Makes you wonder who is selling a wine with such an ugly label!
