    Re: Southern Belle Red

    I cracked my bottle recently and really enjoy this one. Like MyOldKyDram I don't know much about wine, but this one tastes great, and has the Pappy pedigree. Cheers!

    Re: Southern Belle Red

    Opened a bottle of this tonight and boy is it hot. The alcohol aside, it tastes rather thin and one dimensional to me. To be brutally honest I think this one's gonna get poured down the drain. I hate to do it with a $20 bottle but oh well.

    I wasn't that impressed when I tasted it. Lots of great Syrah/Shiraz at that price point.

    There is a reason bourbon barrels aren't used in wine aging.

    The one I've found (off the top of my head) that I like is Wildside's BBR out of Versailles, the KY one. One of the few KY wines I've had I could actually stomach, truthfully.

    We sell a ton of KY wine so I can't knock it but most is way to sweet for this guy. Not to mention there are 70+ wineries in KY. Only a few grow any fruit.

    I thought dollars were their main crop Eric.

    Everyone is selling some form of widget.

    Sweet wines have a place in the wine market. Just as GNS has a place in the whiskey world. Purists don't like it but the sales and accounting departments do.
