The Federalist Dueling Pistols, 2009

WOW – what a great wine for what I understand is the “introductory” year of this blend.  The “Dueling Pistols,” a blend of 50% Zinfandel and 50% Syrah, is anything BUT dueling.  These two grapes meld beautifully together producing a wine filled with aromas of dark berries, black currant and hints of vanilla.   The flavor is bursting with berries and black cherry.  Oh…. what a super smooth finish.  This is a fantastic blend.  Full bodied.  Lovely.

Get it.
