About the Winemaker: Page Springs Cellars is gorgeous. It’s like an oasis in the Arizona desert but better; it has wine. From a scenic perspective it might be my favorite Arizona winery to have a glass or two. There is a great spot on a deck overlooking crystal clear Oak Creek, that when paired with a glass or two of wine will set your mind at ease. Natural beauty isn’t the only thing Page Spring Cellars has going for it. Wine Maker Eric Glomski Makes some pretty great wines, and he really shines when it comes to the blends he produces year to year. The wine I’m reviewing today is a blend which he describes as having been created with large family gatherings in mind. It is a wine meant to be paired with savory foods, and it is meant to be shared.

Color: Deep Purple

Nose: Cherry and well ripened Apple

Taste: Apple, red fruit, dried oregano, tea leaves, and oak.  Orange blossom on the finish

Assessment: Tannins and texture are the stand out features of this wine. The full body is complemented exceptionally by soft oaky tannins. The flavor notes are plentiful yet quite reserved. The apple notes are a nice touch. Eric has achieved his goal of creating a wine for large family gatherings. The wine will please just about anybody’s palate, and is priced as such you could buy enough for everyone. It’s drinking perfectly right now. More recent vintages will age well.

Vino de la Familia by Page Springs Cellars is a very good wine, and is priced as such that I recommend buying multiple bottles. 91 points.
