Wine Find

November 02, 2010|By Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun

Just in time for the cold weather comes this lush, textured cashmere blanket of a dry red wine. A masterful blend of syrah, zinfandel and merlot, it hits all the right notes of roundness, complexity and length. It offers full-bodied blackberry fruit seasoned with herbs, black pepper, coffee and chocolate. It's ready to drink but should have up to five years of staying power. At $14, it's an insanely fine value — worth buying by the case.
