To follow on the heels of the Green Fin 2010 White Wine, we bought both on a lark and tasted the Red Wine the next night. Like I’ve mentioned, I’m very knowledgeable about wine and am used to drinking lots of higher priced stuff (As they say I’m ITB). We were kind of shocked at how drinkable the white Green Fin was and have bought a couple of extra bottles to have as a week night drink.
Having tasted thousands of wines over the years, I have found over the years that lower priced whites do better in general than low priced red in the QPR (Quality Price Ratio). It’s much harder to manipulate the flavors in red wines and it shows in this Green Fin Red Table wine. The 2010 Green Fin red wine is simply, simple. That’s it. There isn’t much there. It vaguely tastes like red wine. Very soft and sweet. Light colored and low alcohol. It’s just too sweet for my tastes and I like bone dry red wines. No varietal flavors, and not that I would expect any at this price point. I didn’t have any expectations about this wine being as good as it’s white brethren and it live up to my expectations! About the only think going for it is that it’s made from Organic grapes
I don’t think I would ever by this wine again and I score it 4 Bells. (I would give it a Parker score of about 60)
