TRUE EARTH CABERNET-MERLOT-PETITE SIRAH
True Earth, from The Three Thieves, is made from organically grown grapes in Mendocino County, CA. No pesticides, herbicides, or conventional synthetic fertilizers are used. Tiny amounts of sulfites are used as a preservative to maintain freshness.
The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petite Sirah with an alcohol content of 13.7%.
Dark red color with subtle blueberry and blackberry on the nose. Light oak flavors with plum and muted fruit are followed by a mild black current finish. Medium-bodied, smooth but thin with a watery edge.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
The fruit is really subdued on this red blend. The wine seems to lack a definitive flavor profile and comes across the palate as "flat." Easy to drink but not too much else here. Retails for around $12 a bottle. Worth sampling if your curious about organic wines, but otherwise it is a pass.
