Wine Review: This deep ruby colored kitchen sink blend from Kendall Jackson opens with a blackberry and stewed plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a plum and blackberry blend with notes of cinnamon and cherry. There are hints of oak and craisin mixed in the towards the end. The finish is dry and its gentle tannins and fruit flavors linger nicely. This is an easy-going red blend to enjoy mid-week with a tangy pulled pork sandwich. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This beautifully fruit-forward, layered wine is rich, complex and offers a sumptuous texture. It has spiciness that comes from the Zinfandel, and fresh, lush red fruit, dark chocolate, and jammy, chewy red fruit tones from the Syrah. Sumptuous tannins from the Petite Sirah envelope the mouth and linger beyond each sip, and a smile is brought to one's face.
