Vinum Cellars Red Rhone Blend El Dorado County Red Dirt Red 2010

Member Review by Vivian Tero:

This is a syrah, grenache, mourverde blend from california. I initially tasted this at a wine bar close to the San Francisco War Memorial. I am partial to complex reds that explode with the taste and aroma of cherries, spices, vanilla, and licorice and this wine fits the bill nicely. It's delicious and smooth with long complex aftertaste that lingers in the palate.

Our basic winemaking philosophy is to work with great grape growers to develop the best fruit in the vineyard. We pick the grapes at optimal ripeness and gently process the fruit. We are very experimental with yeast strains and use different cultures for each variety. Our whites are barrel fermented slowly and aged Sur Lies in small French Oak barrels. With our reds, skin contact is optimized by the use of small open top fermentors, hand punch downs and extended maceration before pressing. Our belief in the use of older French Oak barrels allows the varietal fruit of our wines to be expressed. We are committed to experimenting and learning new winemaking methods while preserving an old world approach. Read less

Great red. Some spice but also smooth. Went fairly well with my sesame shrimp at Sauce SF
