1993 Hop Kiln 'Marty Griffin's Big Red,' Sonoma County ($12)

Wine of the week

November 08, 1995|By Michael Dresser

Big red is right. This blend of zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon and valdiguie packs a wallop as it delivers a mouthful of spicy, robust, meaty flavors with hints of chocolate, blueberry and tomato. It's a little rustic, but graceful nevertheless, like a man who can wear cowboy boots with a tux and carry it off.
