Tread Lightly by Backsberg

South Africa Merlot 2014

The photo here sums up my thoughts on this PLASTIC bottle of wine. My boyfriend’s bare chest is perfectly captured within the walls of my glass while he covers the tender spots. Drop this bottle like it’s hot and it still won’t break - the pool perfect red that actually still tastes good. Not the best, but for summer festivities, winenot? — 11 days ago
