Wine Review: I recently enjoyed this New World styled wine slightly chilled at the Saratoga Race Track in update NY. This wine performed better than most of the horses I bet on. This purple wine opens with a pleasant cherry vanilla bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is smooth and loaded with lush juicy blackberry and boysenberry flavors. This fruit forward wine would match perfectly with a BBQ pulled pork sandwich. The finish is slightly dry and lingers nicely. This wine was a good red option for a hot day at the track. Perhaps that’s twisted. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The meaty and leathery characters and hints of Provençal herbs and spices might have you thinking this Rhône-style blend of Mourvedre, Syrah, and Grenache just fell out of a "California Cheese" commerical. Well, the name is the only cheesy thing about it! Those bright fruit flavors of boysenberry and raspberry sure ain’t no bull! (Note: No animals were harmed in the writing of these tasting notes.)
