Another outstanding achievement from our friends at Bradford Mountain Winery, today’s delicious 2011 Red Field Blend gets our highest recommendation! Don’t let the low price of the wine fool you, dear Operative, today’s wine delivers value well above its asking price.
Aromatic, delicious and loaded with juicy, dark fruits, it really impressed our entire tasting panel. Youthful and bright, this wine is drinking beautifully right now. We can’t help but think that it will only continue to improve - so we’re recommending that you stock up.
Pair this flexible, food-fantastic wine with just about anything. We enjoyed our sample bottles with a cheesy baked ziti, with plenty of marinara sauce and red chili flakes.
Deep purple hues at the core, with concentrated color right out to the fine ruby edge of the wine. Swirl the wine and watch as wave upon wave of skinny, wine-colored legs move slowly down the glass.
Multi-layered, with sweet blackberry, spiced black cherry, blueberry and bramble that meld with sweet spice, dark tobacco leaf, burnt caramel, wild strawberry, cocoa dust, black pepper. At the tail end, subtle hints of anise and lavender make a lovely appearance.
Dark, juicy and loaded with ripe fruit, this delicious wine leads with ripe blackberry, black cherry, wild strawberry juice, cranberry and sweet dried cherry. As the wine breathes, it opens up to reveal follow-on flavors of dark chocolate, sweet spice, dark tobacco leaf, dried violets and a hint of dried lavender.
Very long, juicy and loaded with long-sustaining flavors. As dark, ripe fruits fade, they leave the mouth with a softly chewy coating, with dried red and black fruit, spice, pepper and dark dried flower petals.
