2011 Flying Heart Cellars Red Wine - $5

Not sure what I was thinking when I picked up this Ed Hardy-esque labeled red blend, but it is down right awful. Overly sweet and completely unbalanced. This bottle is going back to Trader Joe's and I suggest you avoid at all costs.

thumbs down

  1. Haha. Lol. Didn't the label tip you off? ;) Thanks for taking one for the team.

    1. I have discovered, as a general rule, wines that have "kooky" labels are not targeted at persons with any established "taste" for wine. I have experienced this marketing technique in other products that have deep levels of "taste" sophistication as well, such as cigars.

  2. I totally agree. I think we saw it on the aisle and just grabbed it but it's def not getting bought again!

  3. Haha, I liked this wine. But it reminds me of some Georgian and even Russian wines. It's not like French/Italian or more standard varieties. My boyfriend who usually only drinks the more continental varieties didn't like it at all. But that's okay. Me and my Flying Heart are going to eat some spicy Thai curry and watch movies together all by our lonesomes!
