Mission Briefing

Codename:

Favorite Son

For the last two years in a row, Deerfield’s impeccable and delicious Red Rex blend has been our best-selling blend of the year. Always, their Red Rex is a Super-QPR (Quality to Price Ratio) wine that delivers a high-dollar drinking experience – for far less money than you would expect for such a great wine. The Red Rex is rich, concentrated and elegant.

Winemaker Robert Rex shows off his decades of experience with this wonderful blend of 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Syrah, 17% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot, 3% Dolcetto, 3% Zinfandel and 1% Petit Sirah. Each varietal works in harmony, making the wine a perfectly balanced experience - on the nose and on the palate.

Today’s 2008 Red Rex is another gem in the succession that is red blend perfection from Deerfield, a winery that we have come to love and admire over the years.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark and concentrated black cherry color through the opaque heart with brilliant maroon edges.

Smell:

Black cherry, mission fig compote, sweet tobacco leaf, dried black tea leaf, Santa Rosa plum skin, cocoa dust, subtle dried fall leaves, sweet spice and a hint of black pepper.

Taste:

The palate very closely mimics the nose, with even more concentrated fruit flavors. As the wine opens, it reveals cherry pipe tobacco, dried fall leaves, black tea, subtle brown spice, dried dark rose petal and subtle black pepper.

Finish:

Puckering tannins add back of the palate lift to the more earthy flavors, giving the wine such great balance.

Pairing:

Enjoy this wine with a wide variety of grilled meats, a portobello mushroom burger, or a very cheesy meat lasagna.
