2009 X Winery "Red X"

This California blend of Syrah, Mourvèdre, Zinfandel, and Grenache proves to be a simple, very versatile everyday wine. We got some ripe red fruit and oak on the nose. This led to some super juicy fruit with some smoky vanilla oak flavors.

The wine makes up in bold spicy flavor for what it lacks in complexity. It's a super tasty red with great mouthfeel--good balance, just-right tannin, and a long finish. This red blend is bound to be enjoyed by many, making it a great party wine, and at <$15 a bottle, it won't break the bank!


I would like to try this X Winery wine--thank you for the review!
