Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good+ (90)

Review date: February 21, 2016

Wine Review: This very good dark red colored blend from California was one of our many discoveries at this year’s Boston Wine Expo. It opens with a pomegranate and red currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a pleasant boysenberry with notes of minerality and plum. We also detected a touch of black raspberry and dark chocolate towards the end. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely prolonged. We suggested pairing this good value red with pulled pork sliders. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromatic blue fruits and brown spices delight the nose, yielding fresh plum and blackberry fruit. The wine is juicy with the plum and blackberry flavors prominent, layered with smoky roasted almonds and hazelnuts, finishing long with fine, elegant tannins and white stone fruits that linger, finishing with a fresh and clean acidity. A rich, red wine crafted in honor of Josh. Pairs well with his favorite meal: a thick, juicy steak and potatoes.

Organic status: not organic
