Mission Sud Cabernet-Syrah 2013

Average price, $15 

Wine of the Month Club, November 2014, $22

Aaron:  I enjoyed this fruity, dark nose with some hints of leather.  The flavor was smooth and void of any bite, just like the berry-cherry flavor lacked any noticeable spice.  96 more words

Soquel Vineyards Trinity Rosso, 2012

This signature blend of their Santa Cruz grapes was primarily chocolate in taste. Soft body, blackberries, baked cherry pastry, no spice or wood, but decent finish. Link to winemaker. Effective 7/10.
