Big House Red Wine Review: It's so good I consider it cheating. $6.99

I kind of think this is cheating, but I'm doing it anyways... I'm trying a wine I already know to be good just so I can write a positive review.

I realize that the Viognier review was pretty positive, but I tried another bottle of red that was DOWNRIGHT HORRIBLE and I decided I couldn't be that person who complains about everything constantly.

So here we are in the Big House.

I love this wine on so many levels. It's medium-bodied, tastes like currants and plums, smells delicious, and has a screw top.

Yeah, I said it. I think having a screw top is a selling feature. It makes the wine portable and put-awayable in ways that uncorking and recorking really doesn't.

It's the perfect wine for practically any occasion, from patio mason jar drinkin' to reheated chicken drinkin'. I have even brought it to dinner parties, despite the fact that bringing a screw top wine to a dinner party is widely regarded as tacky.

You want to know tacky? I'd drink this wine in the pinkest room of the Madonna Inn AND I'D LOVE EVERY SIP.

FIVE STARS TO THE BIG HOUSE RED WINE.
