Snoop Dogg Cali Red Petite Sirah Blend 2020

I am solidly in the “don’t knock it ‘til you’ve tried it” school of thought, so I very much violated my own rules when I compared this wine negatively to the Bedrock Evanghelo Zin earlier this year without ever having tried it. I knew I had to right this wrong ASAP and brought this to my group’s blind tasting. The verdict: guilty pleasure wine.

At $9.99 a bottle (the Whole Foods down the street had a special), this wine was a steal (even if priced 2-4x, I would drink this wine over the Prisoner any day).

If you are like me, you don’t believe Snoop would put his name on anything subpar and rest assured, this wine is solid. At first sniff and sip, you get aromas of bruised black plum and blueberry syrup. It’s verging on Port in ripeness and alc (14.1%) and there’s probably some RS but it’s still seductive and pretty. On the palate, the wine is balanced, with a shocking lightness on the initial attack followed by a sweet cigar note, discrete tannins and a pleasant bitterness (a friend suggested later press factions maybe) on the finish to cut the sweetness perfectly.

Not the wine you want every night with dinner (you’ll wake up with a raging headache), but the wine you want with a blue cheese burger or saucy barbecue. And you’ll gladly pour yourself another glass. Mostly Petit Sirah and Zin.

If this is the bar, I look forward to trying Martha’s Chard.

Yes, solid $10, fun & fruity wine. For pairing, couldn’t agree more with Blue cheese and something BBQ (char & saucy sweetness).

Read an article where Martha discussed her Chard, and it sounds like it should be a good middle of the road chard on the lighter body with mass appeal.

@Rhonely Boy I guess the Martha description isn’t far off from what I’d expect, but I’m such a fan. She’s a class act and a gangster at the same time. I’m in awe.
