2005 Old World Winery Bei Du Rocchi Ranch Red Wine "Fog Line"
Sonoma Coast, California
 
WB Rating: 88

 
Alcohol by volume: 13.9%
Price at time of purchase: $25.00 (from winery)
 
Type: Rhone-style Red
Principal varietal(s): Cabernet/Syrah blend

This flavorful Cabernet/Syrah blend from above the fog line in the Sonoma Coast appellation displays pure fruit flavors that lean more towards the tart plum/dark currant sector of the fruit continuum than the blackberry/blueberry sector, though berry flavors are definitely present as well. Texturally, the wine's high acid level and fruit flavors give it somewhat the same feel as one of the good old Topolos Rhone Ranger wines, or a good French Languedoc. Because of its fruit focus, acid level, and relatively low alcohol, this is an excellent food wine. - HK 2009-07-19
