Winery:  Geyser Peak

Varietal: Red Blend 

Region: Sonoma County

Avg. Price: $ 11

This Red Blend is truly “Uncensored” with a combination of  Merlot,  Syrah, Malbec, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, Petit Verdot and Zinfandel. Is there room for any other red varietals?

Tasting Notes:

Deep purple color with a fruit bomb on the nose of cherry, plum, raspberry, and blackberry. 

On the palette, medium-bodied with soft tennis. No mystery with the fruity tastes but offers different flavors with each sip. A little black licorice, hint of chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, and slight vegetal on the finish which isn’t long, but pleasant.

Food Pairing:

Because of the different varietals, this wine will pair with almost everything but will pair well with pizza, pasta or burgers. It also tastes great on its own. 

Conclusion:

This “kitchen sink” blend has so much going on it will be easy to please, almost everyone and the perfect wine for novice wine drinkers. Good value,  everyday drinking wine.
