‘Everything’s better with some wine in the belly.”
We concur with this quote from the wine-loving character Tyrion Lannister of the popular HBO series “Game of Thrones” which just wrapped up it seventh season.
California winemaker Bob Cabral took the challenge of crafting wines to match the character of the Seven Kingdoms and used eight varietals — mainly syrah, tempranillo and petite sirah — to create this Paso Robles blend.
Flavors of berries and red fruit are showcased but we found the body to be surprisingly light — certainly not enough to challenge the mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen.
Sherry: “Medium-bodied with fruity cherry and raspberry and clove on the finish.” (3.25 stars out of 5)
Chris: “Flavors of blackberry, cherry and plum with a finish of vanilla and mint.” (3 stars out of 5)
Available from $16 to $19.
