A very interesting blend. Smooth, nice intensity, jammy fruit. Not very exiciting however. Good wine. read the full review at: http://piecesdevin.b... Read more
Decent red blend from Fetzer. The zin shines through but could use a little more pop from the syrah/petite sirah. Good drinker for the price. Read more
Always a fan of Fetzer and this one was pretty good. I think I'd go for the merlot over the blend. Read more
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

"We gave winemaker extraordinaire Dennis Martin a clean palette to create a new wine. From there he went about crafting something remarkably Californian - wine that was smooth, socialable, well-blended and slightly non-traditional. Fetzer Crimson balances the best of Syrah, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah into a pronounced oak profile with toasty aromatic components. He could enthuse about all the foods perfectly complemented by Fetzer Crimson, but Dennis thinks you should let it stand on its own first. This is a wine to be enjoyed with people." Winemaker's notes "A blend of Syrah, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petite Sirah. Nearly opaque ruby-violet. The scintillating nose of roasted meats covered in dried berries is bound together by a rich dollop of oak. On the palate, the sheer gush of vanilla and oak tones is countered by thick, full-bodied flavors of briary red berries and sweet black fruits, with a touch of smoke on the backend adding complexity. A bold, dark, intriguing wine that coats the palate from beginning to end. The generous fruit, tannins, and acidity bode well for trying this with burgers, cheesesteaks, pizza, and barbecue...."
