We were at the Everett Ridge tasting room a few weeks ago (After our Brack Mountain tasting with Texacali Ali) and enjoyed ourselves. The server was very nice and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed this and the other wines (Esterlina, Everett Ridge and Diablita) we tasted. In for one, since I have a ton of wine coming.
Fill your glass when it is empty, empty it when it is full, never leave it empty, never leave it full.

After an hour of decanting, my impressions were that it had a cherry smell, some pepper or spiciness, soft tannins and a slightly sour but enjoyable finish. I was surprised that the alcohol was 14.9% because it never seemed hot. Like others who have commented, this seems like a good pizza wine at a very affordable price.
I too enjoyed this wine, and especially at this price. I felt it have a bit of savory notes on the end, what I like to compare to almost an herb infussed au jus meatiness. Something I tend to find in some of my favorite tempranillos.

Hoping someone can help. I openned a bottle of la diablita blanca earlier today and to my dismay found it too sweet for my taste. Not obscene but im more of a dry white wine drinker. The blend is sauv blanc and reisling tjpugh i suspect the reisling dominates. Sucks. Anyway, i have 5 bottles to to go and am wondering what you wine wooters recommend i pair tjis wine with. Please advise! The wine is well- made by the way.

I'm sorry to be so late posting, but I went to the Bears game today and came home to no internet. I also had this at the Chicago Woot gathering hosted by jmdavidson a few weeks ago. Here are my impressions:
The nose had some pepper (green and black) and spice. I also picked up something vegetal that seemed to be either dill or some componenet of pickling spice (not unpleasant). I found flavors of black pepper, spice, vanilla and that "meaty" note that funbunny mentioned earlier. For me, there was not a ton of fruit in this one. Lots of tannins here.
