Red Flyer

2003 Red Flyer ($9) -- California Rhone Blend that is taking aim at Red Truck and Bonny Doon. 15,000 cases produced by Hahn Estates. 11 months oak.

Syrah, Durif, Mourvedre, Grenache, Carignane and Clone X blend with forward fruit aromas and flavors. Integrated tanins. It is a real quaffer! This is a party red, a picnic red, a good everyday red with food or by itself.

"Red Flyer represents an emerging genre of wines that I am referring to as "entertainment wines". These wines offer exceptional value and serve as the centerpiece of any dining experience."

The website is a hoot! Don't get sucked into the game unless you have a few hours to burn!

The website mentions that it is a Trader Joes' exclusive but I am not sure about that in Ohio as a national rep justed dropped a bottle off. Details to follow.
