Twisted Oak Calaveras County #& ! Red Rhone Blend 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The meaty and leathery characters and hints of Provençal herbs and spices might have you thinking this Rhône-style blend of Mourvedre, Syrah, and Grenache just fell out of a "California Cheese" commerical. Well, the name is the only cheesy thing about it! Those bright fruit flavors of boysenberry and raspberry sure ain't no bull! (Note: No animals were harmed in the writing of these tasting notes.)

This wine has very delicious blueberry on the front palate, nice and sweet. Before you know, the mid-palate and finish follow suite of traditional Rhone blends with some nice plum action and spice. The wine had good weight, nice mouthfeel and finished quite smoothly. Definitely a great offering from Twisted Oak!
