Much like the rosé it introduced earlier this year, this new red varietal is a far cry from the bottom-shelf hooch you might be accustomed to sipping from 40s. As its maker and co-founder of Forty Ounce Wines describes, it's a "light-bodied, lively, and dry" red, and is best served with a slight chill, or no warmer than room temp. It's made from sustainably grown Gamay grapes from Northern France, and won't "knock you out with tannins," so you can drink it all day/night (in moderation, people) without worrying about a headachy hangover.
Forty Ounce Red is scheduled to hit shelves September 15, so keep an eye out for the bottles at your local liquor store. Looks like the PSL has some new competition in the fall beverage arena.
