Bitchin Blackberry – Douglas Vineyards

Our wine tonight is the Bitchin Blackberry from Douglas Vineyards in Kannapolis, North Carolina.

Grape wine with natural and artificial blackberry flavor.

Not sure of the base. I’d guess Chardonnay.

The nose is reminiscent of blackberry Kool-aid.

The owners suggested this one for us to take home as it is always one of their top sellers.

It did not disappoint. Very easy drinking.
