2011 JanKris Crossfire, Paso Robles 750ml 3-Pack
Truly the "world's blend" A Merlot base followed by smatterings of Cab, Tempranillo, Petit Syrah, Syrah, and Grenache. Young enough to age well in your cellar, yet old enough to enjoy now. So many things going on your mouth that you will marvel at the feel and the sensory overload your taste buds will succumb to. A little drier than Riatta and a little more sophisticated.
This wine illustrates the harmony of a traditional Bordeaux style blend enhanced by ripe Spanish varietals. Each variety imparts an individual personality while remaining in perfect balance.
2011 JanKris Riatta, Paso Robles 750ml 3-Pack
Riatta is a signature blend that unites the roundness of Merlot, the brightness of Sangiovese, the intense fruit of Zinfandel and subtle acidity of Tempranillo, resulting in a beautifully balanced wine.
This exciting big red blend combines the four best red berries we grow. 65% Merlot creates the base in a smooth Bordeaux style. Sangiovese is added at 20% of the volume bringing a bright Italian flair to the wine. We take the fruit forward big taste of Paso Robles famous Zinfandel (10%) and finish the balance with the incredible Spanish varietal Tempranillo.
Each and every year this blend sells out the vintage, one sip and you'll know why. Easy drinking smooth and silky, tough not to finish the bottle.
