Philo Ridge Vino di Mendocino III

Philo Ridge is a small winery with vineyards on the Mendocino Ridge of the Anderrson Valley. I have enjoyed Philo Ridge Pinot Noirs and am branching out tonight with a red blend: 50% Zinfandel, 30% Petite Sirah, 15% Carignane and 5% Syrah. Although the name suggests Italy, the wine is 100% California

Deep, dark color suggestive of all four grapes in the blend. Captivating smells focusing on black raspberry. Also black fruits on the palate along with chalky Petite Sirah and earthy Carignane spices.  Easy drinking but not at all simple. This is a wine for drinking and enjoying right now with every day fare. I like it.
