Wine Review: Joe Carr makes wines that are quite tasty and affordable. He has done it again with his new creation “Josh”. This bright ruby colored red blend opens with a pleasant light cherry like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, and easy to drink. This wines flavor profile is tasty ripe cherries. The finish is dry and has very controlled tannins that are slightly prolonged. This very approachable wine would pair nicely with burgers and steak tips of the grill. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Forward complex blends with ripe fruit flavors from select vineyards. Black current, spicy, berry fruit with gentle oak nuances.
