Red Truck Winery:
TRUCK FRIENDS AND PARTNERS! We've flagged you down to fill you up with premium Red Truck materials. As Charlie our wine maker said, "The key to making wine is knowing where you want to go. With all of the Red Truck wines, I knew exactly where I wanted to go. I wanted to make wines that had both style—young, fresh, in your face, and substance—balanced, flavorful and smooth." Hopefully you'll find that our materials reflect this philosophy as well.

A blend of 45% Syrah, 29% Petite Sirah, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Malbec and Mourvedre that was fermented in stainless steel then aged in a combination of French and American oak. 11,600 cases produced annually. The aromas are reminiscent of sweet candied fruit like cherries and strawberries, pretty one dimensional. The palate is tart and again kinda has that sweetish red fruit thing going on. Not much tannins, light bodied, modest alcohol at 13.5% abv, not very much of a finish. A very simple easy drinking wine that is about $10 US. Fortunately somebody left me this bottle and I didn't have to buy it. There's so much more interesting wines especially imports you can find for the same amount of money. I really doubt this wine actually went into oak barrels, probably more like oak chips or even worse oak dust as this wine has been filtered and stripped of any soul. Don't waste your money. 1/5

It makes you feel good just like that old red truck your grandfather had...big-hearted, well-made, and full of life. We've blended some of our Syrah with our Petite Sirah and Cabernet Franc for a juicy berry base then added a bit of Grenache and Mourvedre to round out this baby with licorice and spice for a full-bodied finish. WELL-CRAFTED BLEND OF: Syrah, Petite Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Mourvedre TRUCK INSPIRED BY: 1947 Dodge Power Wagon. Winemaker’s Comments Medium-bodied and complex, flavors of chocolate, berries, cherries and licorice abound. The black pepper finish settles with smooth tannins.

This delicious wine composed of Zinfandel, Carignane, Syrah, and Mourvedre explodes with cherry, plum and black pepper notes reflective of its renowned Sonoma County & Dry Creek Valley terroir. The backbone of this wine comes from Dry Creek Valley, a certified organic vineyard located on the west side of the creek. This gorgeous vineyard, filled with old head-trained vines, has produced blockbuster fruit since the mid-1960’s. A blend of 81% Zinfandel, 8% Carignane, 5% Syrah and 3% Mourvedre aged in French oak barrels.
