Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
0=2 blog will now feature on Thursdays just before the weekend, wine tasting notes on affordable wines (ie under $20). Since we all have Gnostic Masses, fraternal gatherings, etc. choosing a wine that can be excellent as well as affordable can be difficult for someone just learning about wine. As the Grand Sommelier General, I want to take way all those difficulties and make it easier for you.
The first wine is Besieged 2013 by Ravenswood Winery. The wine runs around $15 and I’ve found it as low as $12. It is a blend of Petite Sirah, Carignane, Zinfandel, Syrah, Barbera, Alicante Bouschet and Mourvèdre. Wine is from the Sonoma Valley.
Color – Dark Ruby almost black red.
Aroma – Intense bold black fruits with lots of spice.
Initial Taste – Layers of rich, robust, and round fruit flavors of blackberry, black cherry, and plum spiced with cardamom and cinnamon.
Finish – Nicely balanced fruit with notes of cardamom, cinnamon, and touches of dark chocolate.
Love is the law, love under will.
