2009 Blanchard Family Red Scarf Blend, Red Wine, Sonoma County, CA, $27 (S) – Rating 90
Loved this intense blend of Cabernet, Syrah, Sangiovese, and Zinfandel from Blanchard Family Wines. Rich juicy black fruit flavors of cherry, blackberry, plum, cocoa, vanilla with dark spice and a hint of tobacco box. The wine opens quickly with well integrated and soft tannins. A portion of the proceeds from this wine will be donated to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
