Elyse Nero Misto Red Wine 2011

Elyse Nero Misto Red Wine 2011: Field grape blend resplendent with jammy California fruit; round, smooth, delicious, flirts with big jammy but doesn’t get there (thankfully).

Well-made California melange of petite sirah and zin, plus five others; misses a tad on acidity, but you don’t have to worry about puckering tannin; easy drinker, with some structure amid the parade of ripe fruits; tasty drinkability. Pushes value-for-price envelope, but worth a pour—you may love this; you will not hate it; such is wine. $28Elyse Nero Misto Red Wine
