Barbed Wire

Barbed Wire, wine

Some winemakers source very specific vineyards while others cast their net wider for their grapes. This blend uses the go big philosophy and gathers grapes from a 5,000 square-mile area along the North Coast of California.

The backbone in this fruit-forward wine is 73 percent cabernet sauvignon sourced from three different counties with 27 percent merlot from Napa. The wine is aged in oak and shows ample dark fruit flavors and spice.

Sherry: “A blend of plum, blueberry and clove with a touch of mint on the finish.” (3.25 stars out of 5)

Chris: “A nose of licorice and molasses with flavors of blackberry, plum and a dusting of chocolate.” (3.5 stars out of 5)

Available from $11 to $14.

Coming next week: Renato Ratti Marcenasco Barolo
