NEW Drop Dead Red

Nello Olivo - Drop Dead Red



The Grapefather aka Nello Olivo

Drop everything. The Grapefather says Drop Dead Red is “dead-on delicious. A wine to die for!"

In the notorious tradition (family business) of Wine Mob favorites, Grapefather Red I & II, comes a bold new blend that slays the competition.

"What's in this big tasting blend?" you ask. If we told you we'd have to...well, never mind. Just know that The Grapefather dedicates his delicious new vino misterioso "to your very good health."

Swirled into Drop Dead Red is a rich complexity of flavors and makes a great gift for someone you share a complex relationship with. It's the perfect message in a bottle--the label says it all.

Seriously, come in soon for a taste. But please make sure all your affairs are in order.

"When life becomes too much, enjoy a generous glass of Drop Dead Red and go to a better place!"


REVIEW: "This wine really holds up. I put a vacuum stopper on it after two days with just the cork, and still a day or two after that, it tasted wonderful.  It does benefit from being left open for a time. I was concerned it had too many flavors to pair well with anything but heavy flavored dishes. However, it worked with almost everything I had for dinner: pork, beef, chicken and even corned beef. It is also very drinkable by itself. I usually pour myself only a half glass for dinner. But with Drop Dead Red, I went back for more." Doug Noble
