Smashberry Red 2012
Smashberry wine is a deeply opaque purplish-‐fuchsia color with a dense blackish core going out into a fine violet-‐red rim definition with high painted viscosity. This wine is a fruit bomb with a plethora of mashed red fruits including raspberries, cranberries, currants and strawberry sorbet melded with black fruits such as blueberries, mulberries and boysenberries with hints of violets, vanilla, spice mélange and underlying oak notes. This wine hits your olfactory senses through the mouth with an incredible red and black fruit mix, showing all sorts of crushed blackberries, jammy black currants, deep spice-‐laden black cherry and boysenberry sorbet, with a full-‐bodied underlayment, showing through the nicely balanced midpalate replete with chewy big black fruit and oak undertones. The finish is medium in this deliciously palate-‐pleasing wine.
Wine AdvocateA big, ripe and delicious effort that's also a smoking value, the 2012 Red Wine is a blend of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 28% Petite Sirah. It offers up easygoing aromas and flavors of cherry pie, mint and underbrush as well as a seamless, textured and well-fruited palate. You could do a lot worse for the money. This is a perfect mid-week drinker. Enjoy it over the coming couple of years. Drink now-2015.
Wine EnthusiastSmashberry is the perfect name for this wine. Made from an unstated blend of grape varieties, it tastes like mashed, ripe blackberries, blueberries and cherries. The alcohol level is moderate, but gives the wine a pleasant warmth.
