Judge & Jury Red Wine 2013
This was more robust than I expected for a Sonoma wine. I expect Sonoma flavors to be more subtle and light, but this was bold and very much appreciated. Not much nose, although a whiff of cherry cola was interesting. Rich flavors of tangy cherry, balanced with a tart, spicy finish. Another bargain from WTSO and a very pleasant surprise.
Caramel and spice on the nose and young and fruity with caramel notes on the palate. This Sonoma wine is extremely quaffable. If you're looking for something with a long finish and complexity, keep looking. If you want a smooth red to have with a hearty dinner, pick up a bottle of Judge & Jury.
