Jamieson Ranch Vineyards Whiplash California Red Blend 2014, California

My Rating 86 Points.

Price $15.

Beautiful ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Strong fruity nose of blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, alcohol, chocolates, tobacco and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and beautiful long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blueberries, cherries, raspberries, plums, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, herbs, spices, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Medium finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a nice red blend from California. Gentle and interesting, with a soft mouthfeel. Mild complexity and almost balanced. Not very structured, but enjoyable nonetheless. Showing too much alcohol in my opinion (some might like that…)

14.5% alcohol by volume.
