Complex and Satisfying California Cabernet Amethyst with a hint of brown (tasted 2010) – mostly opaque with translucence around the edges. Scrumptious bouquet of fig cake, raspberry jam, and ethylene. Initial mouth feel is surprisingly light, similar to tart berries. A robust oaky quality soon marches in to support the flavors. Taken together, the body is more typical for a Cab – meaningful, but not overwhelming. This wine is not an “Oak Montster” but could certainly defend itself in a fair fight. Flavors are balanced between juicy and dry. Grapefruit rind, unsweetened cranberries, and burnt toast with a razor-thin layer of raspberry preserves combine in a wonderfully complex fashion. Aftertaste is enamel-coating dry clay dust, with just a touch of the berry notes to soften the experience. Enzo’s Tierra Roja is superbly complex. Although clearly a mid-weight in the arena of California Cabernets it is nonetheless a contender. Even without the levels of concentration in a Silver Oak (Alexander Valley) or Justin Isosceles (Paso Robles) – two of my personal favorites – it is a wine to take seriously. The fact that it doesn’t bash the taster over the head to prove its point makes it more interesting and appealing. I tasted with lean ground beef and the two were good complements. I believe it would also pair with fattier cuts of meat. The next day I tasted it “solo”; it’s a bit too substantial to be a cocktail wine! review remains the property of C Elliot 2010
