This modest red wine punches above its weight, or more accurately, above its price point. It’s not a status wine by any stretch of the imagination, but there is quite a bit going on for a $10 wine. Zinfandel, Merlot and Petite Sirah combine for a nose that’s magnificent - full of campfire, caramel and a rack of spices. Dark fruit flavors keep things sweet on the palate, while that four-month smattering of oak leaves a mark, but does not obliterate what the grapes have to offer.
