Candy Ass Red is a newly released wine from Glorie Farm Winery. I have to say, I love the label!
The wine is made from mostly Concord grapes. This is a first for me to taste a wine made with Concord. The wine is a sexy red color, and as the sunlight came through the window the wine danced and sparkled in the glass. It put a smile on your face before you even had the first sip.
The nose was grapes. At first I thought there must be some Cayuga in this, Cayuga to me is very grapey. I would have never guessed the wine was made with Concord. The taste – very sweet and grapey. A grape Jolly Rancher would describe this wine. Good mouth feel.
For wine drinkers who like wine on the sweet side, you will enjoy this wine. I think it just might become the Hudson Valley’s Hot Tub Wine.
Candy Ass Red is available in the tasting room at Glorie Farm Winery and retails for $12.
