Everyone has their thing, for some it is religion and for some it is politics. I feel liked being political on your wine label is a net neutral. In some cases, you will freak out religious people who believe that marriage should between a man and a woman. Of course, on the other hand homosexuals might flock to buy this wine because they think it is funny. I actually imagine a male gay couple taking this wine to a dinner party hosted by another male gay couple.
This bring us to the 2010 Same Sex Meritage. Get it? Meritage and Marriage, sounds alike? A little corny in my opinion. They have their own website but no tasting notes. I think it is more about the support of gay marriage then it is a wine. Here is the only information that we have:
United States citizens should have two irrevocable freedoms– to marry the person they love and to purchase an awesome wine at a reasonable price. Same Sex Meritage is a new red wine that accomplishes both. With every bottle you purchase, Same Sex Meritage gives $1 toFreedom To Marry– an effective and noble advocacy group for equal marriage rights. You can buy this impressive red wine online right nowor you can see who sells Same Sex Meritage near you.

Well then how was the wine?
Color – Medium red with some transparency.
Nose – Raspberries with other berries and Vanilla bean.
Taste – Pretty light-bodied wine with raspberry and red currant.
Finish – Medium with medium to high acid and medium tannins.
Overall, this wine was pretty easy drinking and was not very complex. This is not surprising when you realize that they care more about the cause than the wine. I personally believe that you can donate $1 to any cause but if the wine is not very good then you won’t sell any to help the cause.
