TODAY'S FEATURED WINE
Lewis Perdue's Rating of Lasseter Family Winery: Rhone Blend/Red Wine: Sonoma Valley-California: Chemin de Fer: 2011: United States
This full-bodied, Rhone blend delivered a big boxcar of raspberry/cherry fruit on a fast set of tracks to my palate's sweet spot.
Muscular tannins kept everything on the rails.
42% Grenache,30% Syrah, 28% Mourvédre. $44 retail.
For winery tasting samples, gifts from friends or family or samplings at a party or event, review it truthfully, but only if I like it. If I have paid my own very-hard-earned money on a bottle, the gloves are off and it gets what it deserves ... whether perfect or puerile.
