11-11-13 Word On Wine…Mary Takes Two Reds For The Team

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

This week despite copious hardship Mary tried two inexpensive reds.  It’s tough work but someone has to do it!

1)2009 Cune Roija Crianza.  $12.  A nice example of the Tempranillo grape but nothing extraordinary.  The fruit was tempered but not elegant!

2)2011 Conti Torraiolo Toscana Sangiovese-Cabernet Sauvignon.  $8 in the bargain bin!  This Mary liked much more.  It had nice dark fruit and the cab gave it good structure…the blend was 85% Sangiovese and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
