Hayes Ranch Wines California Red Blend 2013

image

My Rating 81 Points.  
Price $9.

Here is another nice party wine. Good right out of the bottle.

Ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity on the nose with light Barnyard, dust, blackberries, cherries, sweet plums, sweet strawberries, red currants, light vanilla, light oak and white pepper.

Medium to full bodied with high acidity and nice legs, but a little harsh.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, tart cherries, strawberries, raspberries, currants, oak, cloves, coffee, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Medium length on the finish with soft tannins and tart cherries.

A Drinkable, everyday red blend. Not complex and not very balanced. Simple but could be had by itself or with food. Very similar to many other red blends that are simple yet drinkable.

Paired it with a plate of hard cheeses and dried fruits.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
