Item no. 103115
Dark berries, spice, minerality, and earth combined with violets, some liquorish and pleasant hints of vanilla and oak marks the beginning of this wine. Fresh young smooth tannins and integrated acidity bind fruit and structure together implying great potential of further complexity development with some extended bottle aging or if preferred now decanting for at least an hour.
The deep crimson-colored 2006 Calico Red is a blend of 36% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, and the balance Zinfandel and Cabernet Franc aged for 10 months in French and American oak. It exhibits an excellent nose of cedar, spice box, black cherry, and blueberry leading to a medium-bodied, ripe, flavorful wine with plenty of up-front appeal. This tasty effort will provide pleasure over the next 3-4 years.
