Drops of Jupiter 2011 wine review by (PB)
Intensely pigmented black cherry hue
Aromas of huge jammy blackberries with tar, and dark cocoa.
Palate-- Silky, thick presence with big blackberry, extracted style, full bodied; a BIG fruit bomb that finishes with more berries and dark chocolate.
This is a lot of wine for $8.
Jimmy Stafford of the band "Train" (Hey Soul Sister) produces this wine and gives a portion of the proceeds to a San Francisco organization called Save Me San Francisco.
Sourced, blended, California fruit,(my guess is a major portion of Syrah) this is a nice value if you're in the mood for this style of wine so raise a glass.
