2011 Smashberry Central Coast Red Wine
This wine is dark, rich and delicious, if a little tannic. Waves of blackberries, currants, anise and dark chocolate lead to a dry but voluptuous finish. Good value in a full-bodied red. Best Buy. —S.H.
Jammy and juicy, with modest cherry and spice flavors. Merlot, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2016. (Web Only--2013)
