Fidelity Alexander Valley "Red Blend" Crazy Creek Estate 2007 review by (PB)
Black cherry hue with fruit galore rising from the glass while sitting. Perfumey notes of dill, spice and vegetal hints with herbal fruit, green pepper and is getting "crazy" good as it warms up from cellar temp.
After breathing, there is a cocoa foundation with blackberry fruit and plum all over the place.
In the mouth this wine is plush with minerals, silky tannins, gorgeous balanced fruit and structure with a slight smoky finish.
This is a marvelous wine (81% Merlot, 19% Cab Franc) which I bought over the internet for $15 and 99 cents shipping! I can tell you already this wine will definitely be in the running for one of my top 10 wines of 2011. Raise a glass!
