2005 Murphy’s Law Red Wine
I’m not sure what’s in this one, but the 2004 has Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Sangiovesse. I’m going to guess it’s some blend of those, though this winery also has vineyard which produce Syrah, Grenache, and Blaufrankish.
Oak, spice, and berries...blackberry it seems...on the nose.
Smooth and medium bodied...I think I can actually taste the Sangiovesse. Blackberry, raspberry, cherry, mild oak, a hint of anise, and mild tannins.
The finish has oak and cherry...it fades somewhat quickly but is pleasant.
Not bad at all. It's light enough and well balanced so this can really be paired with anything. Give it a shot.
