Alexander Valley Vineyards - 2002 Two Barrel

Two BarrelAt the end of one of the aisles at Grapevine Market is what seems to be a sort of odds and ends collection of California red blends. That’s were you’ll find, for example, the Red Flyer I profiled awhile back. And that’s where I found this wine too.

The name of the wine is is taken directly from the fact that it’s 50% Syrah and 50% Merlot. Aged for 14 months in French and American oak. Tasting notes from the winery can be found here.

This is a big fruity wine with tastes of blackberry and blueberry. Soft tannins and great sipping independent of food. Probably a better wine than I would ordinarly open on a Monday night.

About $18.99 (Austin)
 very enjoyable. Lots of dark berry fruit. 14% alcohol.
