7/4/2015 - caeleric/cae_cpa Likes this wine: NR

pnp, consumed at a party. actually enjoyed this. lots of tobacco and cigar for me. a little vegetal, but not offensively so, just seems like an inexpensive wine. nobody would confuse this for a great wine, but as a 4th bottle of the night it works, or when you just want to drink something inexpensive on a weeknight with leftovers. if scoring, 83-85 with no aging potential i can tell.

Highly aromatic with savoury, meaty, beetroot and cherry notes. It's medium-bodied with velvety tannins and nice aroma replays. Balanced acids and long finish. Score: 90+ pts

A full nose of fruit, smoke with a dry after taste. Round full flavor to the mouth, tannins are present but do not inhibit the experience with a proper balance of fruit and tart. No bitter after taste still liquid to the tongue, not dry to the palate. Close to the French-style Petite Syrah, dry with full fruit and not the usual California fruit without the tannins. I am amazed at the balance of fruit and acid of a wine that might have otherwise turned. No signs of browning as it sits in the glass upon opening, perfect for 2015, which is a surprise. I've had a Barolo show more age in the glass with only four more years in the bottle.

Very good with Pizza. Drank a more expensive merlot afterwards, but everyone preferred this one. Excellent QPR at $10.

A wonderful field blend from Sonoma. Enjoyed with a diverse pairing of lobster roll, pizza and salad. Typically I would drink this with red meat but it did not over power the diverse food served. Very fruit forward with soft tannins poured through an aerator.

Dark red with a slight orange tint. Raspberry jam, cola, and oak nose. Medium bodied, cranberries, bing cherries, black pepper, resinous tannins, mocha, a bit of heat, and a fruity, medium + plus. Well made for the price.

Strong fruit wine. Black raspberries to smell. Black raspberries and kiwi to taste. Notice the blue berries to taste after swallow. Kiwi is in the finish. It will stand Up to meat because of that tartness at the end.

For a free bottle of wine in my hotel room, this was surprisingly drinkable. Plus the bonus that it was easily identifiable as Pinot Noir.

Exceptional bottle of Cali Zinfandel. Opens with mixed berries, spice box, and toasty vanilla. The palate is complex and rich without being overdone. This wine is smooth and textured with a med-long finish and good acidity on the back end.
I have not been a big fan of California Zinfandel's lately but this is changing my mind.

Primarily from Sangiacomo Vineyard on the western side of Carneros.
Fuller, richer, oakier than the DeLoach RRV 2012. unfiltered.
at the same time, still well balanced, not a butter bomb. still tree fruit palate.
