2009 Sean Minor Napa Red Wine
This comfortable mix of assorted red grapes keys on ripe-berry fruit and shows a nice trim of rich oak and a slightly herbal edge, but it garners recommendation for its ongoing impressions of polish and balance. It is moderately full-bodied and fairly supple in feel, and, if as might be expected, it lacks any keen varietal specific, it is a very versatile wine that will drink well with sundry red meats.
There’s something distinguished about this blend of several varieties, but also something one-dimensional. It’s pretty good for the price-dry, smoothly tannic and proper in blackberry, dark chocolate and cassis flavors.
A zesty red blend, with smoky cherry and coffee aromas and appealingly rustic flavors of plum, roasted herb and cracked pepper. Merlot, Petit Verdot, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Malbec. Drink now through 2016. (Web-2012)
