Primal Roots California Red Blend 2012


My Rating 83 Points. 
Price $12.

Deep Purple in color with a purple rim.

Fruity on the nose with blackberries, figs, raisins, red candy, oak, vanilla, licorice, sweet plums, cherry pie, nutmeg and mediterranean spices.

Full bodied and bold with medium plus acidity.

Off-dry on the palate, and very fruity, with blueberries, blackberries, black currants, oak, vanilla, cherry pie, sweet plums, earth, leather, spices and black pepper.

Long, sweet finish with fine, soft tannins and a sweet ending.

An Enjoyable party wine that is Good by itself. This was a little too sweet for me, but most of us enjoyed it. Nicely balanced and not offensive, but very simple.

Good right out of the bottle. I decanted it for 2 hours but that did not make any improvement.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
