Red Blend

Podere Il Castellaccio

Orio Bolgheri Red Blend 2017

Dark ruby in color, almost Inky, with a wide reddish rim.

On the nose blueberries, black currants, black cherries, light vanilla, coke, licorice, Indian spices, tar, light vegetables, earth, tobacco leaf and graphite.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cherries, wood, spices, light vanilla, tobacco, peppercorn, espresso and earth.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very enjoyable Cabernet Franc blend from Italy. Tangy and interesting with lots of fruit.

Better after 90 minutes of airtime.
Really loved the nose after 2 hours in the decanter.

Showing very nicely at this point, once it opens up, with nice complexity, good structure and a nice mouthfeel. I love these Italian Bordeaux style reds.

Good by itself as a sipping wine, and good with food too. I paired it with cheeses and Italian dried meat.

A blend of 60% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot and 10% Syrah. Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. A small production of only 8,000 bottles.

14% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$28.

Shining Hill Red Mountain Red Blend 2016

This is the least expensive wine Col Solare makes, about fiddy. It still fucks. Btw I’m drinking and scrolling and about to check in a LOT of wine sitting in my account I forgot about with extremely suspect notes based purely on drunken memory. 🎉 — 5 months ago

Estate Limited Edition Napa Valley Red Blend 2015

Really nice blend. 48% cab sauv, 21% cab franc, 21% Syrah, 10% Malbec. Nose was blueberry, earth, pepper and a hint of vanilla. Smooth mid plate with a medium weight and good balance of fruit and acidity. Oak, blackberry and raspberry with pepper, spice and forest floor that lingered for a long time. Enjoyable. — 9 days ago

Though the brutal TX heat is back, it means plenty of time for grilling, and this was a fun red blend to pair with burgers.

A fun field blend where everything but the kitchen sink seems to be in here…mostly zin, with 6-7 lesser known varietals. A bit funky upon opening (pop and pour), this opened to reveal a brambly, tobacco leaf, weightless yet jammy profile. Soft and supple mixed fruits aromatically (mostly red and black fruits), with some added woody notes (more earthy than oak driven). The mid palate here reminds you this is zin to its core with plenty of black cherry compote and then the vibrant acidity driven finish sports some black pepper and spicy rhubarb. Mostly integrated at this point, I think this is at its apex.

Vintage 2019 | hint of orange, stinking smell (positive), high acidity. This needs something to eat because of high bitters, lots of character. Swallow reflex. — a day ago

Detroit. Living large with my boys.
On the nose this is complex. Comes across as rustic, with notes of graphite, cinnamon and cocoa powder. Palate is ethereal, as expected. Nice weight and balance. Somewhat dry mouthfeel with medium tannins. Mature cherries blend with moderate acidity. Finish is completed with cigar box. Food will help this wine. Drink or hold. Loving the moment…

Poggio Le Volpi

Edizione Limitata Roma Red Blend 2016

This is an extremely dark wine, inky black, and it smells of black plums, blackberries and black cherries. The palate shows a terrific display of said fruit with a savory blanket of spice and licorice thrown over it. The tannins are a bit tame, but that fault does make for an extremely sippable wine. It will pair nicely with pork or tomato-based dishes. — 9 days ago
