Torn Identity

The grape doesn’t fall far from the vine with today’s TORN 2015 ZIN X CAB Red Blend. This wine was made by our good friend, Addison Rex, the nephew of one of our favorite winemakers, Robert Rex - of Deerfield Ranch Winery fame. We secured a special price for you on this inaugural release of the young Rex’s new label!

This two varietal blend has an inky garnet core spreading out first to ruby and then a fuschia lip. The wine has a fragrant nose with a bouquet of bright ripe cherry, juicy plum, subtle leather and tobacco with an allspice kick. The traditional flavor profiles of Cabernet and Zinfandel collide where the black cherry and currant of the Cab meet the blackberry, vanilla, gingerbread and butterscotch of the Zin. The duality of the blend is on display as the fruit forward nature of the Zin compliments the structured tannins of the Cab with bright acidity, leading to an extended finish. It’s both approachable and elegant. You can dress it up with a proper steak dinner - like our Hickory planked ribeye steaks with cowboy butter. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it.

We’re issuing a special thank to Addison Rex, who gave us first crack at offering this first release from his new Jurassic Wines label. We look forward to many more and we wish him the greatest success. Once you taste this 50/50 Cab/Zin blend, you’ll think that he deserves it, too!
