I found my first bottle of Curmudgeon at O’Darby’s Liquor Barn in Landrum SC. I could not find any information on the Curmudgeon Winery. I did find Webster Dictionary defines curmudgeon as “a crusty, ill-tempered, and usually old man? This Californian Red Blend has grapes of Merlot, Zinfandel, and Petit Verdot. After a swish in the glass I smell the splinters in the oak barrel. I taste the name, cherry and plum develop. Run your tongue around your mouth for a taste of apple. A whiff of chocolate. A semi mild finish of pear. After 2 glasses you dispel the grumpy in ker-me-jen. I rate it a 4. Went back and bought two more bottles.
