Hoo Doo Red
We had a couple bottles of Longoria Wine's Hoo Doo Red with dinner at the wine country cottage Saturday night. It is a very easy to drink blend of syrah, tempranillo, merlot and malbec. It is very drinkable now, and paired well with pizza, salad, lemon bars, ants on a log and "i never." At $16 dollars a bottle, it is a relatively good value for Santa Barbara wines which were generally over $20, particularly red wines. Unfortunately, we were unable to visit Longoria's lovely tasting room and garden in Los Olivos as it closes relatively early at 4:30pm (for future reference).
