Format: 750 mL

Alcohol: 13.5% Alcohol/Vol.
Here’s a nice surprise: a California red that is below 14% alcohol, not sweet or flabby, has some complexity, it’s priced under $20 & oh yes, it’s nice to drink
Tasting Note: Light to medium ruby in colour with good acidity, a medium+ intense nose, mild tannin & a long length on the finish. Wine features cherry, blackberry, blueberry, black & red currants, raspberries, arugula, mocha & vanilla
Interesting Point: You won’t find this wine on Josh Cellars winery website, strange but true. I expect it is made for export only.
Pairings: Drink now or over the next 3-5 of years on its own or pair it with Mongolian Beef.
My Opinion: Recommended
