Bridlewood Estate Winery Blend 175 Central Coast Wines Domestic Other Reds 2011
Editorial Reviews for Bridlewood Estate Winery Blend 175 Central Coast Wines Domestic Other Reds
Deep and candied on the nose with lots of caramel, toasted oak, and black fruit with floral and peppery spice notes framing a meaty core. Big and round in the mouth with early notes of meaty fruit, sweet vanilla and black plums on the palate that pick up a little light coffee cream, caramel and a little peppery spice on the backend before fading on the soft, moderately long and slightly sweet finish. There are some firm little tannins here that appear on the finish as well. Big and gangly but I see the appeal. 83pts

My Rating: 85. Very fruity dry body with little interesting notes. Nose is clean with no hint of Oak but some fruity notes. Wine is overpriced and does not deliver. It is called Blend 175 because they tasted 175 wine casket to blend this. Did they really have to combine the lower grades? If you find 3 good caskets this would be enough!
