Deadbolt 2012 Winemaker’s Blend

P1040172

Deadbolt is a big, bold California blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Syrah and Syrah. The pour is deep purple in the glass. The nose is powerfully fruity and jammy. On the palate, black cherries, plums, and currants mingle. The Merlot offers a wisp of earthiness and the Zinfandel, a pinch of spice. The wine finishes smoothly, without acidity or heat. Deadbolt delivers handsomely for its $12 price tag.

Update: We’ve added Deadbolt to our regular weekday wine list. The complexity and balance presented in the blend holds our attention and keeps us coming back for more.
