||Deadbolt 2011 Red, Winemakers Blend, California
Here's another succulent, seductive red blend from California. This is a style of wine that's really grabbed onto the taste buds of wine drinkers everywhere and it's no wonder. Particularly in the case of this Deadbolt Winemakers Blend, because the Winemaker really knows his stuff. Philip Laffer is a legendary winemaker from Australia, leading such iconic brands as Lindemans and Orlando's Jacob's Creek. At Jacob's Creek he made a science of putting ripe, solid, expressive, good-drinking wines into the bottle that could sell for a bargain price. Working with a lot of the same varietals he used in Australia, here in California with Deadbolt, he's doing it once again. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Petit Sirah and Shiraz is so delectable, smooth and satisfying you'll wonder why you'd ever pay more for a great everyday red.

First try at your wine, love the label and the price. Confused though, the wine fizzed for at least a minute when we opened it, didnt expect this, also lacked aroma wondering if this could be a faulty bottling?? Taste was flat, we were afraid it may be "spoiled?" Will await your answer, thank you,

Hi Jill-- It sounds like you got a bad bottle. We'll be reaching out shortly to replace it for you. Sorry for the poor experience! This wine should not fizz.
