2017 Drinkin’ Buddy Club Blend
Drinkin’ Buddy, also known as our basset blend, brings the spirit of Lone Star Wine Cellars to family and friends. This formidable red blend is a collectors’ necessity. Named after the Ross Family’s 17-year old basset hound, Drinkin’ Buddy is a rich and complex red blend with smooth aromas of coffee, leather, and cherry. Dried cherries, plum, ripe fruit, black pepper, and cedar grace the palate with a long lush finish.
