Smashberry Red 2013


SKU 50623


Smashberry is all about the fruit: bright raspberry on the nose and boysenberry and cocoa flavors on the palate. It is rich on the palate with a supple mouthfeel, yet has firm tannins and a clean finish. Not a wine for the faint of heart or spirit. Destemmed, crushed, and sent directly into fermentation tanks. Pumped over with several delestages during 7 to 10 days fermentations on skins. The wine was pressed, racked, underwent malolactic fermentation, and was then aged 9 months on American Oak.

Wine AdvocateAnother fun wine geared for near term consumption is the 2013 Red Wine, which is made from 38% Merlot, 34% Petite Sirah and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. A big fruit bomb with notes of plums, blueberries and brambly spice, drink this medium to full-bodied, quaffable and well made effort over the coming year or two.

Wine EnthusiastThis is becoming a wildly popular offering from the Miller family of Bien Nacido and French Camp fame, and for good reason. Black slate, blackberry and pungent purple fruit power the nose. The palate shows lots of juiciness, but with a plum-peel tang and hints of tobacco. It's not extremely complex, but quite quaffable.
