Mirassou Sunset Red 2011
As readers of this blog will know I'm deeply suspicious of CA reds at the lower end of the price range: they tend to be awful. Not so this product of what may well be the oldest winery in the state (it has been in the same family for six generations) . An idiosyncratic blend of Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, and Merlot (who'd ever have thunk of it ?) it delivers a nicely balanced blend of red fruit flavors, along with a caramel finish, A real bargain at $6.99. ( Nerts to those of you who think that my only interest in life is to to knock the P.L..C.B.).
