2011 Mario's Blend
Fruit forward on the nose, ever evolving to a smooth finish.
This is Mario's Blend.
Opens with fruit forward notes of boysenberry, black cherry, and dried plum, along with candied cherry, red licorice, cedar, sandalwood, and root beer spice. The palate envelopes the mouth with bright notes of juicy plum and boysenberry, with hints of cola spice, sweet tobacco box, and vanilla. This reliable after-work red, made by Winemaker Mario Tedeschi, is an intriguing blend of Merlot, and Primitivo. Mario's Blend is tasting excellent now, and will drink nicely over the next 2-4 years. 265 cases.
