Rabbit Ridge Allure de Robles 2011

Rabbit Ridge Allure de Robles 2011(California $4.99 TJ's)
Red Blend- Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre

Color: Deep Garnet
Smell: Strawberry, oaky, moss, and black pepper
Taste: Bold strawberry, rosehips, cherry, medium acidity, medium alcohol, and semi-sweet

Food Pairings: Pork Medallions
Mildy Seasoned Lamb
Beschwipster Huhn(German Drunken Chicken)

Summary: Once again I was drawn into buying another bottle of wine that I didn't need by a bright endcap at Trader Joe's. Paso Robles has been putting some magnificent big reds on the market the past three or four years. I wasn't at all hesitant being purchasing being from Paso Robles and the very low price point. On the nose I was hit by strawberries and oak with mild undertones of moss and black pepper. The taste was strong of late September strawberries, rainier cherries, rosehips, and a little spice.
