Flirty Bird Red Blend

Based on this red blend, this is an aptly named winery.  It’s just like that person at the bar that may be fun to flirt with, but you don’t want to take it home. It gave me what my wine annotator describes as “red wine face”…which is not a good thing.  Luckily, we found this at our local Aldi’s grocery store for about five bucks.  I’ll stick with the slightly cheaper Winking Owl they sell that is surprisingly good.

Hint, hint, wink, Winking Owl

So, we’re in Aldi’s grocery store and we come to the wine section and there are these bottles with cute little owls on them winking at us.  There’s cab, merlot, shiraz, chardonnay, pinot grigio…all for $2.98. What?! Yep, $2.98. Well, I figured we can’t miss on this.  Even if it sucked, that would only be a loss of three bucks.  Well, this Winking Owl cabernet sauvignon is surprisingly good.  It’s not the best I’ve ever had, but at about $3, you can’t really beat it.  The label describes it as more full-bodied than light and semi-dry, and it is right on.  I’ve never seen Winking Owl before, but we’ll certainly pick up a couple the next time we ‘re in an Aldi’s.
