Red Bandana Anytime Red Wine is a wine I have purchased recently from Whole Foods. It is very inexpensive at only $8.99 per bottle, but is quite good. Just as the name states it is a good anytime wine. It is a perfect grilling out, back porch, casual kind of wine. It is very fruit forward without being sweet or over ripe. It could possibly be considered off-dry.
At first sip, the main flavor you taste is strawberry, but after a few sips, you notice there is some cranberry and blackberry in there too. We had it with grilled salmon and the pairing was perfect, but I can also see it being good with grilled chicken or barbecue. All and all, it is a very drinkable, enjoyable casual wine.
I have tried to hunt Red Bandana Anytime Red Wine down on the internet, but cannot find it. There is a Red Bandana label, but it is in Pennsylvania, not California and doesn’t list Anytime Red as one of its wines. I have contacted them to check, but at this writing have not received a response. If I track it down, I will definitely update this post to let you know.
Hey, I’m also trying to track this wine down. My Virginia Beach Whole Foods stopped carrying it soon after it became my favorite drink at home alone wine. Have you found a vendor for it?
That was a 2011 vintage and it looks like that wine company is no longer making wine with that label. If you are looking for a great red to replace it, try 2012 Purple Star Syrah http://amzn.to/2bL4xAF it just won a bunch of awards and is wonderful, or the Purple Star Cab is always amazing too http://amzn.to/2c7mLPd – I am a member of the winery and it’s my go to wine! I love you can buy it from Amazon too which ships from the winery to you so you know the wine has been stored right also!
We love your review – thank you so much.
This wine is available at Whole Foods around the country.
There is indeed a Red Bandana Winery but this brand is totally different and separate from that.
If you have any questions – please let me know.
