Deadbolt Red Winemaker's Blend 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

An unspecified blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Syrah Sweet blackberry fruit and boysenberry aromas greet the nose along with some rather sweet cedary spice and cracked black pepper top notes. Sweet on entry but not terribly so and with less weight and a smidge more acid than many of these wines. this is actually fairly light on the palate with lots of zinberry fruit and black currant flavors. The edge of bramble leads to the finish which is a bit short, and shows the sweetness with some cafe au lait edges, but wraps up with fine grained tannins and some jammy black currant notes. About as sweet as is typical of these wines but this one is lighter on its feet and more elegant than most. 87pts

We sought out a wine that would reflect the characteristics of individual vintages, the first vintage being 2010-a great year for Californian wines. By combining the elegance and length of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the varietal power of Zinfandel, Petite Syrah and Syrah with other carefully selected components, we created a blend that's not afraid to go its own way up. - Winery
