Wines to Sampled to Include:
Rabble Red Blend 2014
Paso Robles, CA
The nose blooms first with red cherry, ripe plum to dark raspberry with hints of anise seed and ending dusty suede. Explosive on the palate, like taking a bite out of fresh blueberry pie with a toasted crust. Lush ripe fruits give way to supple tannin, layers of dark and bright berries with balanced acidity and firm yet restrained structure. The strong finish lingers of black tea and plum.
Peterson Shameless Red Blend 4th Edition
Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, CA
The spicy dark berry and dried strawberry aromas mingle with undertones of earth, worn saddle and oak. Offers a bright mix of dark berries— boysenberry, blackberry and just a touch of blueberry— along with ripe cherry, a blend of spices, and hints of leather and black pepper. Toasty oak contributes to the wine’s depth and adds dimension.
Purple Heart Red Blend 2014
Napa Valley, CA
Aromas of mulberries, plums and blackberries with hints of black licorice. Dark ruby and opaque in appearance, this medium-bodied beauty is lushly textured with notes of red and black fruits and hints of cardamom. Seamless across the palate, the wine has a long, velvety mouthfeel and balanced tannins.
Cline Cashmere Black Magic 2015
An alluring blend of grapes (Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Mourvedre and Carignane) that were spirited away from ancient vines rising up from the dark, rich loam. You’ll be spellbound by the resulting blend with its notes of juicy cherries, vanilla, and hints of dark roasted coffee. Experience the dark delights of Cashmere Black Magic.
