About this Wine

Vineyards

Tin Roof Red Blend was produced from grapes sourced mostly from vineyards in the Lodi appellation.

Winemaking

Boldly flavored, smoothly textured and unusually complex, Tin Roof wines are designed to please wine lovers seeking distinctive varietal character.

Winemaker's Notes

A triple play of Zinfandel, Merlot and Petite Sirah, this wine is seriously big without being overpowering. Each grape contributes unique characteristics to the wine. The Petite Sirah provides black pepper and blue fruit flavors, while the Merlot offers notes of black cherry and green olive. The Zinfandel imparts additional sophisticated berry and spice flavors. Full-bodied and rich in character, this wine can easily be enjoyed on its own or with any hearty style dish, like a beef stew or rib-eye steak.

Current Vintage Accolades - 2011

4 Stars / Spirit of Wine

“Deep black fruit...husky, bold and aromatic...with strong savory and sweet spices melded in. Soft, sweet, spiced and structured. Finishes aromatic and clean. An awesome best value.”

86 Points / Intoxicology Report

“Zinfandel, petite sirah and merlot, the wine is quite well done in the genre: an explosive jam bomb filled with stewed fruits, brown sugar, black pepper and big billows of cooked plum with cinnamon.”

Side Dish

“Tin Roof Red Blend brings Zinfandel, Merlot and Petite Sirah together in a harmonious mix for a big, juicy wine with spice and pepper notes, ideally paired with a bone-in grilled Texas rib-eye or smoky barbecue.”

Winelines

“Translucent neon ruby color. Sourced from grapes grown mainly in the warm Lodi region, this medium-bodied blend of Zinfandel, Merlot and Petite Sirah shows aromas and flavors of black pepper, menthol/eucalyptus, ash, soil and moderate sweet red fruit.”
