Loco Lulu – Parker-Binns Vineyard

Our wine tonight is the Loco Lulu from Parker-Binns Vineyard in the Tryon Foothills wine region of Western North Carolina.

Loco Lulu – Soft Red Blend

Non-vintage on the bottle, though we believe this to be of the 2018 harvest.

Classic Bordeaux blend of estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Dark purple in color with a bright garnet rim.

Nose expressive of fresh Bing cherries, think of a freshly baked hot out of the oven cherry pie, cocoa, soft florals, cinnamon, vanilla, and smoke.

We aerated for 60 minutes.

Medium bodied, medium tannins, with beautiful cascading long legs.

Flavor notes of black currants, blackberries, cherries, red plums, and spice, finishing toward more subtle notes of cedar, vanilla, black pepper, and pipe tobacco.

$12.8% ABV

Winemaker: Justin Taylor

$20 a bottle.

Lulu’s paw of approval is stamped on the cork.

Ships most states via VinoShipper. Check the website for ordering.

Named for Lulu the winery rescue dog. $1 from every bottle sold is donated to her favorite local pet adoption organization.

Parker-Binns Vineyard is close to our home and therefore we visit often. We hope to see you visiting one day soon!
