Save me San Francisco Wine Company  Drops of Jupiter Red Blend 2012, California 

My Rating 86 Points.   

Price $12. 
Dirty ruby in color with a light purplish rim.

Fruity nose with blackberries, blueberries, dried figs, sweet cherries, earth, licorice, light vanilla, wood, spices, sage and black pepper.

Full-bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Very fruity on the palate and dry, with blackberries, black currants, cherry pie, wood, licorice, spices, chocolate, dark coffee, mocha, carmel and black pepper.

Medium plus on the finish with round tannins and spices.

This is a very fruit forward red wine from California. Well balanced and drinking very nicely by itself now, with some complexity and enough acidity to make it not too jammy. A good sipping wine that can accompany foods like BBQ Meats.

A Great value for the price. Good right out of the bottle and a good party wine that everyone can enjoy. Not offensive at all.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
