There are some brands of wine that I buy without reading what kind it is. This certainly goes for Orleans Hill wine. It’s organic and with no added sulfites. Sounds good enough to me. Plus, I know I enjoy some varieties already. I hadn’t tried the Zinfandel kind yet and I was looking forward to it. And it doesn’t hurt that this particular brand of wines easily runs you less than $15 and sometimes if there’s a sale at your grocery store less than $10. Nice, right?
When it can time to pop the cork, I was left a little unsatisfied. The strong aroma comes bursting out when poured and the color is a deep rich purple. The first few sips were a bit on the harsh side for me. Maybe I wasn’t expecting the full robust pepper flavor. The strong spice flavor stays strong till the end. You can still get a jammy taste from all the berries, it’s just not as pronounced. With all that I said, I think this wine would accompany most foods just fine. I will defintiey try this wine again when I’m in a more adventurous mood.
