Wine Rex-Goliath

The new year is a time to tighten the wallet so we always aim for the bottom shelves.

It’s risky business, but who doesn’t like a bargain? That way you can save money to buy more.

This nonvintage blend of syrah and zinfandel is adorned by the label that features His Royal Majesty Red Goliath, a giant 47-pound rooster who was a circus attraction at the turn of the 20th century.

With a bottle sticker that says sweet and juicy, you know what to expect. It’s jammy and fruity but still has enough body to carry the sweetness. A penny earned!

Sherry: “Medium-bodied with plum and blackberry flavor; rose and clove on the finish.” (3 stars out of 5)

Chris: “Flavors of raspberry and red licorice with a dollop of vanilla and well-balanced tannins.” (3 stars out of 5)

Available from $5 to $8.

Coming next week: Sagelands Riverbed Red
