Picked up a few strays with this among 'em yesterday, having remembered that some of you had posted on the Blass Cabs over the last year or two. Must admit, very nice, with good solid fruit and only 13% ABV. And at $9.89 at the rip-off joint, it will probably be a buck or two less at the discounter, which would indeed make it a bargain jug o' juice. Paired it with a (shudder!) frozen dinner, a penne pasta thingy, since she's in Houston visiting her BBBS for a weekend of antique shopping; and even with that sorry pairing, it faired well.

(BBBS for you uninitiated = big-busted baby sister)

Heh, heh. Boy, are YOU barkin' up the wrong tree!

Candid opinion needed. The 2000 Blass is easy-drinkin' now, but doesn't seem to have the backbone needed for aging. Do you guys think it would improve over a few years in bottle?

Hotsie, the ones I've had all seem like early drinkers. WW

Thanks, WW. That's what I figured.
