Bonny Doon Ca' Del Solo Big House Red 2003 Wine Review (NW)



Tasting Notes:

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!
