Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Three Thieves markets this organically grown, Mendocino County, screw top red wine as.....
.....derived from the fact that organically farmed earth is in natural balance and harmony. We believe that the living soil that organic farming allows for yields wines with more personality and sense of place. Healthy soils, healthy vines equal truly pure wines.
Though True Earth is certified organic, the rest is mostly wishful thinking and ad copy hype. The wine strikes me as flat and uninteresting but at five bucks you could serve it at a party and nobody would complain. It isn't terrible. It isn't sickly sweet. It isn't Two Buck Chuck. It isn't bad. It is pretty smooth with very little aroma. Interestingly enough, for just a moment, the first sip tasted like.....wait for this, now.....grape juice. That didn't last long.
Originally intended to retail for around thirteen dollars US, Mrs TWC picked up a bottle for five bucks to sample. If you can find this wine for five bucks it will work for Tuesday night with pizza. At $12.99 you should keep moving.
