2010 Joel Gott "Alakai" California Red Wine

SKU #1112637 Connoisseurs Guide

 *Good Value* Here is a bright and buoyant young wine whose message is one of fresh, strawberry-like fruit, and, if never complex or showing a great deal of reach, it is a compulsively drinkable, wonderfully well-balanced effort. The Joel Gott label has consistently scored well for value, and this vibrant Rhône blend hits the mark again.  (7/ 2012)

K&L Notes

This Rhone-style blend of 77% Grenache, 17% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre, and 2% Petite Sirah was sourced from select vineyards in Monterey County and Knight's Valley. It was aged in 60% new French oak and represents an excellent value in California red wine. From the winery: "The 2010 Alakai from Joel Gott has aromas of raspberries, white pepper, cinnamon and spice. Bright red fruit flavors are followed by a sweet fruit mid-palate and a smooth, seamless finish. The wine is balanced with good acidity and well-integrated oak."

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.
