Stein Family Winery is located in Santa Rosa and produces a variety of different wines. For this fun sounding blend they source grapes from around the North Coast and Amador. 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Zinfandel and 10% Cabernet Franc; a Paraduxx style blend that shows off their best and most interesting grape lots from the vintage. Ripe fruit is accompanied buy supple tannins and good balanced acidity. A ripe red blend that's easy to enjoy especially for the price.
This has summer BBQ wine written all over it. Ripe, lush and jammy fruits balance beautifully with the bright acidity and supple tannins. Nothing overly complex, but for this price it makes a perfect pairing for your burgers, wings and BBQ ribs.
