A well-balanced expression. This full-bodied blend's dark, jammy fruit flavors and rich, soft tannins are framed nicely by notes of sweet oak and end with a graceful, lingering finish.
The grapes were picked mainly at night to keep the fruit cool, maintaining the delicate flavor characteristics. The grapes were then destemmed, but not crushed, leaving a large portion of whole berries in the fermentor. The must was fermented at a maximum of 88°F in order to emphasize the dark, jammy fruit flavors in the finished wine. The wine was racked frequently, allowing the rich fruit flavors to open fully.
I love blends, always have, and this blend I picked up at Shop Rite liquors is just delicious from the first gulp. I tried a 2009 not a 2011. Syrah/Cab/Zin. Highly recommend it!
