Wagon Train 2016 Red Blend, Zamora CA

Thickkk legs on this one!  Good burgundy red color which adds to the rich quality. 

The nose is floral with violet and a little lilac. A little vanilla and pepper. 

Mouth feel is jammy. A little earthiness in the taste. The Syrah grape ads body and complexity. It really held up to a smoked brisket and added sweetness to the meat. It’s got a green young taste too. It’s tannins also have a young raw quality in the finish which is smooth and balanced. 

Overall I think this wine could sit a bit and should show some interesting qualities. 

Lovely wine at 4.99 from Grocery Outlet!
