Winemaker NotesThis year’s California Red Blend is a soft red wine comprised of different varietals to create complexity and to show off the great fruit flavors that our grapes in California contribute. The nose kicks in with dark aromas of black cherries and blueberries while the first taste mixes things up with raspberries and Bing Cherries. The mouthfeel is rich yet soft and has a nice long finish that invites you to take a second sip.


Food PairingPair it with a pot roast or simply your favorite burger.

Reverse Wine Snob: RECOMMENDED BUY

The 2012 Murphy-Goode California Red Blend begins with a pleasant aroma of black cherry, sweet raspberries and bit of vanilla and licorice. The Zin leads the way when tasting this smooth and soft wine that also has lots of sweet, rich fruit and plenty of spice. That sweet, tart fruit lingers for a good amount of time on the finish. This is a really nice example of very popular style right now — a California red blend that is rich, slightly sweet and has a good amount of oak influence. Luckily it also manages to avoid the manufactured feel that plagues so many of its competitors.

Wine Enthusiast:

This is soft and easy in texture, light in flavors and slightly sweet. Light to medium bodied, it has very little tannin or astringency, is low in acidity and quiet on the finish.
