Shebang! "Killer Value" Domestic Red is Blowing Up!
Robert Parker calls it a "California version of a high-class Cotes du Rhone." We call it a phenomenal value that is just plain fun.
He doesn't stop there, either:
"A Mediterranean blend of Zinfandel, Carignan, Alicante Bouchet, Syrah, and assorted mixed blacks fermented with native yeasts and aged in primarily neutral containers (15% in new French oak), it is a California version of a high-class Cotes du Rhone. Lots of berry fruit intermixed with lavender, pepper and meaty black cherry and black currant flavors emerge from this satisfying, round, expansive, generous red. Killer value..."
With roots in some of California's most prestigious wineries, such as Ravenswood and Bedrock, this is no small-time wine by some fly-by-night winery! This is an explosively delicious wine that has taken the world by storm, and it's only gotten better since their inaugural release 6 years ago.
When you hear people talk about a "house red," this is exactly what they have in mind: wide appeal, nuanced yet bursting with flavor, and something to be enjoyed with or without food. Grab one bottle and you will be back for a case!
Just one sip and you'll be saying it too: Shebang!
All My Best
