A sweet red wine that has a nice plum finish. It should be served chilled.
A crisp and refreshing fruity blush that is off-dry. It has a very nice tart cherry finish. It is an excellent sipping wine and should be served chilled.
The Simply Red was my first taste of Iowa wine, and I have to say it was a delightful surprise. The nose is tart cherries, with some kiwi and strawberry thrown in to keep things interesting. The flavors follow suit, candied strawberry and cranberry components making me salivate. This is a very balanced wine from start to finish. Iowa wines, I will raise a glass to you any day. From the fun-loving nature of your logo (a grape in shackles riding a bicycle) to the fun-loving nature of your wines, this was a genuinely delightful tasting experience.
Wow. What a surprise and delight. This non-vintage red blend is fun and approachable - a great wine for beginners. I say that because red wine can sometimes seem frightening with all the words used to describe it, and so people continue drinking white wine thinking that tannins are a bad thing. Grape Escape proves that red wine is just as delicious with this offering. In the nose there are kiwis and strawberries doing a little swing dance, leaving the granny smith to watch from the sidelines. With your first sip you realize that it is very light, almost effervescent, and that the granny smith is now playing the lead. While the tannins are kept in check and the mouth feel being ever so light, this is a wine that I think everyone could enjoy. Not quite a Rose, it would still be great with Thanksgiving Turkey.
The aroma of this wine has several different smells: cherry, coffee, candy, and a slight medicine-y quality as well. The taste takes all of those sensations, blends them up with a light mouthful and viola! :) The price is very fair for this wine, which hails from Iowa.
This is a wine that does not mess around. I say that because when I stuck my nose in the glass I knew exactly what it was and when I took my first sip I knew exactly what I was tasting. There was none of this fake flavor business, this was straight up, in your face kiwi-strawberry, and I loved it. This is a fun wine to drink and as such should not be taken too seriously as wine so often is. Pop this wine with some friends and have a great time.
