Irish Family Vineyards Pog Mo Thoin Red Blend
A little Irish juice to sooth the soul tonight with this classic from Irish Family Vineyards. Russell and Joan Irish will tell you their wines have "no snob appeal" but instead think of them as "elixirs to the good life." I picked this gem up from my favorite (Oh you are so lucky to be on vacation) wine shop First Avenue Wine House at the recommendation of Traci's husband Ron. Great bottle of wine under $20.
Aromas of black fruit, rich vanilla, luscious blueberry complimented by a huge spicy nose (anise). Let her open up and raspberry and bright cherry add to the fruit streaming from the glass with some wild violets. Lush and rich.
Really like the mouth feel with the fruit forward character followed by a hint of spice. Blueberry and cherry dominate with dark fruit notes followed by vanilla and spice. Nice little cherry/raspberry finish. Thanks Ron for the recommendation. Digging the red blend.
Drink great wine because life is too short. Looking to join a wine club then try WSJWineClub and save $120.
