Devil’s Wishbone 80/20 red wine 2011

By: Devil’s Wishbone
Varietal: Cabernet Franc, Merlot
2011

Thanks to our friend for bringing this one back from the winery. Seems to be one of their first release, blended with 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot. Decent aromas with some leather notes and cherries. Hints of sourness and wood and eventually earth. The sourness is not really present in the taste, but the wood does show. This creates some dry mouthfeel. Just not much tannins. The taste is pretty mild though. Kind of watery with a short finish and light yeast lingering. Nothing offensive, but a little too mild to be an average red wine. Does get stronger after breathing a while.

Rating: 2.3/5
