Loco LuLu Red – Parker-Binns

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

Loco Lulu – Soft Red Blend

Non-vintage.

Blend of estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Chambourcin.

Nose expressive of fresh Bing cherries, think of a freshly baked hot out of the oven cherry pie, red plum, mocha, violet, honeysuckle, vanilla, and smoke.

Medium purple in color with a bright garnet rim.

Decanted for 30 minutes.

Medium-light bodied, medium-light tannins, medium acidity, medium alcohol with beautiful cascading long legs.

Flavor notes of red currants, cherries, red plums, and baking spices, 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. LuLu is of course the famed winery dog.

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

If you’re fortunate enough, their summertime once a month sunset parties are a must!
