Mission Codename Ranger Red
Today’s 2012 Dry Creek Valley Red Field Blend is a delectable, crowd-pleasing wine that balances sweet fruit against earth, spice and minerals - making the wine very well-rounded and very pleasing to a broad array of wine preferences.
This wine is approachable, juicy, balanced and really fun to drink. If you are looking for a budget wine for an afternoon soiree, or a great weeknight wine that won’t break the bank, this wine is an excellent choice.
Here’s what respected wine writer, Vino Votary (his code name), has to say about the wine:
“If there was ever a wine made just for burger lovers, this is it (and my taste buds go straight for a bacon blue burger, medium rare, of course). Blends showcase a winemaker’s style, and Bradford Mountain showcases the Zinfandel that put Dry Creek Valley on the map. Syrah adds a velvety note, and the Petite Sirah adds the spicy finale.”
Very highly recommended!
