Good red for the kind of easy holiday drinking we will be doing today. Soft fruit. Easy for paso.

Great bottle to share with friends. Not too dry, dark berries, good budget wine. Great Mexican food I paired it with.

A little too sweet; better than it needs to be for $13.

Good but a little acidic. Under $10 it's a deal

Definitely better after some breathing time. Decent blend, well balanced, good for a weeknight dinner, but nothing terribly exciting.

Not a robust red. This one is more like a table wine. Balanced tannin without a long finish. Better than previous vintages as this one us more balanced. A wine to enjoy without thoughts.

A medium ruby-red, the '11 Clayhouse Red Zinfandel Blend 'Adobe Red' is a mindless everyday drinker. The fruit-forward nose is all black cherry and blackberry with some toasty overtones. The sweet jammy flavors mimic the nose. Extremely soft tannins glide toward an abbreviated finish. A wine to enjoy without thought.
