“You wouldn’t expect a sissy blend from a revolutionary. Our new Cru gets big and bold with Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Petite Sirah. It’s like the Fab Four of wine — zin the “cute one”, cab the “clever one”, syrah the “quiet one” and petite sirah the “funny one”. Together, they make beautiful music. WineGuerrilla.com“
Our Tasting Notes:
This wine is comprised of 40% Zinfandel, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, and 10% Petite Sirah. Flavorful wine with elements of ripe cherries and a bit of vanilla. All the varietals really came together well to form a well structured, smooth drinking wine. There were some soft tannins and a bit of earthiness that was enjoyable. It wasn’t as “big and bold” of a wine as we expected but that was actually a good thing in our opinion. This blend was very enjoyable and we would absolutely have it again.
