Very good for the price.
External Reviews for Red Truck California
The California appellation on the label doesn't tell you, but the grapes are from Hames Valley, an interesting little region midway between the cool Salinas Valley and warm Paso Robles. The wine has good acidity and treads a delicate line between cherries and more herbal notes. Light and food-friendly.
Simple and jammy, filled with fresh cherry and berry flavors, this wine has the acidic youthfulness of a Beaujolais nouveau. It's nothing serious, a nice quaffer at a decent price, meant to wash down pizza, burgers and similar fare.
This blend of Syrah and Mourvedre shows a clear ruby color with a reddish glow, with a ripe and luscious aroma of mixed red and black fruits. Juicy fruits carries over on the palate on a ripe, fresh flavor profile that's so fruity it almost seems sweet. It's a jovial quaff, but the fruit outruns minimal acidity, leaving a pudgy beverage that seems as much like a "spiked" glass of fruit juice as wine. A wisp of tannins and an intriguing back not of minerality that's nostalgically reminiscent of old country rain barrels keeps you coming back until the glass is gone.
A delicious field blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, Grenache and Mourvèdre. Lush and soft, with deep black and red fruit, pepper and star anise. Super smooth and very easy to drink; a great go-to wine at the end of a long, hard day.
Ripe and intense, with a refreshing burst of pomegranate, mineral, cherry and pine tones, with firm tannins and a lively structure. Debut vintage of this blend. Mourvedre, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Alicante Bouschet and Pinot Noir. Drink now through 2007.
