Bonny Doon Ca' Del Solo Big House Red 2003 Wine Review (NW)
Blackberry jam on the nose
Crisp and spicy on the palate
Finishes with more berries
Bonny Doon produces this interesting blend that I see available just about everywhere these days. According to the label, it's a blend of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Malbec, Carignane, and Barbera. Where do they find all those vines?
I've had this wine a number of times, and the 2003 vintage twice now. I can't decide if I really like it or not. For sure, it's meant to be a value-priced bottle at $10 or so. And at least it's an interesting blend. If you've had it, tell us what you think- and raise a glass!
