- X Winery Red X Winemaker's Blend 2010 Product #26849 (In Stock)
Here’s a great value red for fans of Orin Swift’s “The Prisoner” or any big, fruit-and-spice-packed, red from Australia, California, or Spain -- sort of a “Baby Prisoner.” A new blend this year of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Dolcetto and Malbec, it hits you in the nose with ripe blackberry, black plum, and a hint of licorice. It will smack your palate around with ripe, juicy, black cherry, plum, and blueberry fruit complicated by a lash of mocha, pepper, and licorice. As the wine escapes, it leaves a finish of blackberry cobbler, cinnamon spice and mocha and good ripe tannin. Best partners in crime for Red X are barbequed ribs, burgers, pizza, or most any roasted meat. All this at such a low price just has to be illegal!
