Original tasting and review : This is Callaway Hybrid Red Blend, North Coast, California, 2013, finished at 14.3% alcohol and first sampled 2 years from vintage date, in April, 2015. It is a blend of 46% zinfandel, 39% syrah and 15% tempranillo.
In the glass: Deep red with some burgundy, almost opaque in the very center.
On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows red and black berries with some green twigginess. From the aroma, seems like this will be friendly and perhaps generic.
On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact soft oaky, silky red and black berries. Aromatic and friendly. Coats your palate and settles for a modest but clean finish.
In summary: Overall, rates three stars with a plus for friendliness on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale. Good value at bargain price point.
