Ok, did you come to this blog post because of my title?!?! C’mon …. did you?!?! That’s alright, your secret is safe with me … because I am REALLY going to have fun with today’s wine!
Big Red Hiney Wine
Walla Walla Valley Skylite Cellars
Cabernet Sauvignon based-blend
When I started doing research on this wine, I was expecting a fun, lively …. maybe even a bit slightly left of center humorous website. After all, these people named their wine Hiney Wine right?!? Well this winery has a very classic looking site and I was also surprised to note that even though they are in the winery business … they certainly have a sense of humor!
After looking over the site, I’m pleased to say that I have indeed bought the winery’s cheapest wine at around $10/bottle. At the top of the price scale for this wine is their 2007 SC Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. But we’re not here to talk about anything else other then Hiney. That said … a note at the winery indicated that they are all sold out of Hiney … so if you want it, you’ll have to pick up and save the bottles you find locally.
The taste? Well, the taste is pretty good or at least it was when I had my red pasta dish. With hints of oak, it’s still a little young – but I of course didn’t mind this. It’s high on the cherry taste, but not overpowering. Did I mention what the back of the wine labels says? …. and I quote:
You only go around once in life, so grab all the Hiney Wine you can get!!
Actually … I didn’t read that originally with the “wine” part, but now that I had to type it … it kindof lost it’s affect. So to end this post off, I leave you with the Winery’s commercial:
