Wine Review: This wine is a classic bathtub blend wine. It surprisingly had a slight bouquet, but I did detect some berry fruit aromas. On the palate, this wine is quite fun and tasty. A perfect wine for burgers or marinated steak tips at your summer barbeque. The finish is quite dry and has some length. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Released just in the time for those summer barbeques. This wine has a berry fruity aroma with vanilla and oak nuances. It is really straight forward and easy to drink. Nice and fruity, slightly tannic on entry but ends with a nice chewy, not drying finish. If you consider this Old Bull is "young" for its age (not quite "nouveau"), you’ll be impressed by its drinkability. Who says you can’t teach an Old Bull new tricks??
