Watkins "Way Cool" Blush

Watkins "Way Cool" Blush Wine Details
Price: $7.99 per bottle

Description: Brad Pitt and Uma Thurman singing reggae in a hot tub of strawberries. The pink Catawba grape presents a taste that appears spicy, free and easy. The perfect "anytime wine," it pleases both the red and white wine consumer.

Varietal Definition
This was perhaps the earliest discovered native American grape, growing wild in Ohio and New York valleys, but it has since been surpassed by the Concord as the most widely planted native East Coast grape varietal. It primarily is used to make off-dry or sweet red wines, with a pronounced foxy (a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky) labrusca flavor. A number of producers also utilize this grape to make sparkling wine.
