#TBT Red Blend

This is yet another wine that we got from Club W: the 2015 #TBT Red Blend.

The bottle reads: Throw it back with #TBT – to last year’s sun-soaked summer days, that unforgettable camping trip with your best friends, and the halcyon days of your carefree youth.  #TBT drinks easy and California-breezy, so pour a glass of this red blend to remember the good times – then go out and create some more!

Alcohol by volume is 13.8%.  It is produced and bottled in Santa Maria, California and it is made with cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot.  It is fruity, medium-bodied and was brewed in stainless steel.  It has hints of thyme and white pepper and has a little bit of earthiness.

The first time I tried it I was baking cookies….

….and I actually did not like it that much, hence, I did not have anymore for about a week.  Strangely, the second time around I liked it a lot more and it was much more drinkable – I finished the bottle.  It ended up being a rather decent wine to sip on, however, I probably would not get it again.  It just didn’t stand out enough compared to some of the really great wines I’ve gotten from Club W.
