We had a nice little write-up from Courtney Cochran the author of the Hip Tastes book
on Bright Red. It was in an article called "Recession Edition: Wines to Brood Over" and the review went a little something like this:
Municipal Winemakers Santa Barbara County "Bright Red" ($20)
Young winemaker Dave Potter's debut effort blends Grenache, Syrah and Cinsaut in a peppy, pizza-ready red that recalls the cheerful fruit- and spice-driven reds from France's Rhône Valley. Watch for a pleasant hodge-podge of aromas and flavors including high-toned red and black berry fruits, rose petals, deli meat and smoke before a lip-smacking finish. It's a combination that'll put a smile on your face and some pep in your step, no matter the number of the Nasdaq. Cheers to that.
