What I love even more is this wine. To save you some of the decoding, it's a blend of Zinfandel (44%), Cabernet Sauvignon (24%) and Petite Sirah (23%) and 9% other reds. (Yes, I added it up. It equals 100. So there.) The nose is dark berries, some dark spice and just a hint of smoke. It tastes of those berries, some black plum and some lovely warm oak. It finishes medium long, with a warm tingle on the end of your tongue and a hint of mocha. Such a velvety feel in the mouth! The absolute perfect blend of the Zinfandel's fruits and the silky Cabernet and the very serious Petite Sirah. This is such a good wine. You don't even need to let it sit - it pours wonderfully structured and flavorful right out of the bottle (trust me, I poured a lot in the interest of my blog).
This would pair well with so many dishes. A big old pasta with lots of sauce comes to mind. As does a nice hot cheesy pizza or a grilled steak!
This has now entered the books (or the blog, I guess) as a Winey Mom favorite. Definitely not a puzzling choice (sorry, I had to). Even I, the "give me a book to read and go away with your puzzles and games" Winey mom, would solve puzzles for it. It's that good!
I was sent this wine for review purposes. I am very very happy that I was and all the opinions above are my own. So is the opinion that you should buy this wine right now. Pin It Tweet Follow @TheWineyMom
