Erik's The Red Toad Hollow wine review by Billy
Nose: earthy, rich, husky with cherry and black pepper
Palate: soft tannins are round and full feeling. slim body but not anorexic
Finish: thin finish that is a hodge podge rather than a single flow.
Overall:This NV is a blend of 18 different grapes from Paso Robles California. The blend lends a rich nose to the wine which is really wonderful. It has got to be quite an accomplishment to blend 18 (red and white!) varietals and make a drinkable wine let alone something with this kind of character. The wine is fun and easy drinking with character enough to stand up to just about anything you want to serve.
