The old adage “you get what you pay for” doesn’t always apply to wine. In fact you pay for what you’re willing to pay for. So drink what you like, not what’s on the price tag.
Case in point, this nice little line from Smoking Loon. Flock? So many jokes, so little time. Right?
We’re always on the look out for a decent bottle of dinner wine for under $10. So we picked this up on a random trip to the grocery store one evening. If anything, we wasted a whole $7.99 on a corporate marketing ploy. Anyone who’s bought tickets to Disney World knows a sting much harsher than that.
It was very nice. An interesting collection of fresh flavors. A beautifully balanced flavor curve from start to finish. Lovely little fruity notes. It certainly made us sit back and go “huh, should have gotten another few bottles”.
