BIG RED of THE WEEK
"THE CLEAVER, California, 2015"
Dense. Rich. Intense.
Zinfandel Based Blend with Petite Sirah and Syrah
Deep and dark, The Cleaver is silky smooth with threads of acidity
that pace from front to back, balancing the full-bodied weight of this wine.
A flavor delight with this blend of red varietals: black plum, blackberry jam, and a smidge of peppercorn.
As the name implies, this wine is designed to go with big cuts of delicious meat.
But its food-friendly nature extends to distinctive, aged cheeses,
rubs with interesting spices, and a few other items that are still found in your butcher’s realm.
