Jamesport Vineyards Red Blend 2006

Member Review by LennThompson:

It's a kitchen sink blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, syrah and pinot noir that surprisingly doesn't taste like a bunch of leftovers thrown together.Medium crimson red in the glass, there are nice, fairly effusive aromas of black cherry preserves, blackberries, black pepper spice and even a subtle smoked meat component that is interesting.Medium bodied with soft tannins and just a little acidity the flavors are very similar to the nose with maybe a bit more smoke and oak apparent.It's not a mind-blowing wine. It's not going to set the world ablaze or knock you over the head... but that's a good thing. This is a good every day local red.

Made with 41% cabernet sauvignon, 31% merlot and 28% cabernet franc, this is an excellent Old World-style wine from a somewhat cooler year. Rich, intense blackberry aromas are layered with tobacco, vanilla, cocoa powder, earth and spice on the nose. On the lighter side of medium bodied, the flavors closely match the nose with ripe, well-integrated tannins that provide nice structure. There are a lot of lighter-body, food friendly local reds from 2004; this is a very good one.
