2009 Mark Herold Wines "Flux" Red Wine

SKU #1112925 93 points Wine Spectator

 Deliciously pure and refreshing, with snappy, vibrant red berry, pomegranate, subtle dusty earth, road tar and dried herbal flavors that are all well-proportioned. Ends with crisp tannins that give the flavors traction. Grenache, Syrah, Carignane and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2023. 1,250 cases made. (Tasting Highlights)  (9/2012)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 My favorite of this trio is the medium to full-bodied, non-oaked 2009 Flux, possibly because it has a few more years of bottle age. Deep ruby-colored with lots of strawberry, black cherry liqueur, lavender, loamy soil and peppery notes, it is filled with personality, and should drink well for 3-4 years.  (10/2013)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good red-ruby. Spicy black cherry and licorice on the nose, with truffle and earth nuances emerging with air. Spicy, silky and mouthdusting, with good sweetness to its dark berry and spice flavors; hints of slightly jammy grenache. Finishes nicely broad, smooth and persistent, with substantial dusty tannins.  (5/2012)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world. Click for a list of bestselling items from the United States.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
