Tanis Vineyards, TNT Dynamite Red 2011, Amador County, California
Tasting Note: Ruby to garnet in color this red blend composed of zinfandel (60%), barbera (20%) and petit verdot (20%) has an aromatic nose of smoky tobacco and black fruit.
On the palate the flavor of oak shows through fruit in this rustic blend.
Bottle Note: When preparing the soil for Tanis Vineyards it took more than muscle to remove the Volkswagen-sized boulders where our zinfandel now grows. Thus the inspiration for TNT Dynamite Red! This explosive red blend will ignite your palate with sparks to savor. Enjoy with everything from apples baked in wine to ziti with ribs. Pop the cork and light your fire with this Dynamite wine from Tanis Vineyards.
