Rosso Fresco Red Blend 2017

76% Merlot, 11% Syrah, 8% Blaufrankish, 4% Cab Franc, 1% Teroldego.

My first East Coast red wine. Woot! Fantastic semi-uncomplicated (has some dark twist and turns) fruity and tasty Tuesday night pour. Table wine.

Plum, cherry, rose, hint of soil, vine and leaf (?Franc?) light-medium body, 12% ABV.

Reminds me of some young vine wines from the Escondido-Baja region. Happy to start seeing East Coast wines making their way to the West Coast. This is also my first encounter with Teroldego, which seems to be avoiding my orbit.

Good Job! More please!

Escondido Valley Zinfandel 2013

Texas. Wow. Very impressed. Warmer climate Zin with rich fruit notes but stays away from the jammy-ness that can come out of the same price point in California. — 5 years ago

I think if you change the label to Napa, it would fetch a higher score. There maybe a stigma there...regardless, it's a delicious SB. @Mark Flesher @Shay Aldriedge

@Shawn R I know several people that would probably score this similarly if it was placed in a Darioush bottle! However, if seeing a Texas bottle, they would find three or four things wrong with it.
