RED HEADS WINE STUDIO YARD DOG RED - 2005
An Australian blend of 46% Petit Verdot, 30% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon. 15% alcohol.
Purple-red color with blueberry jam, wild berries and goji berries on the nose. Ripe, silky and smooth with flavors of black currant, cranberries, vanilla and oak. Black cherry candy and plum notes dominate the extensive finish.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
For $10 a bottle, this is a homerun! Great vibrant fruit. There's a slight tartness underneath that is enjoyable although it disappears as the wine opens up. Over-delivers for its price.
