If you are looking for a highly quaffable wine for around $20, look no further than Broc Cellars Love Red “Part Deux”. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the winery, Broc Cellars is an urban winery with a tasting room in Berkeley producing seriously good, minimally manipulated wines.
The newly released “Part Deux” version of Love Red is a blend of 83% Carignan, 14% Valdiguie, and 3% Petite Sirah from Frei Vineyard in Solano County. The wine was fermented in stainless steel and then racked down to 20 year-old 600L German casks for 10 months. Native yeast fermentation, unfined, and lightly filtered.
Love Red “Part Deux” is incredibly bright and vibrant. The palate is flavorful yet light with tastes of red berries and spicy anise. With plentiful acidity and a juicy finish, I could drink this wine all day. Grab a couple of bottles while this wine lasts! (13% alcohol, MSRP $20)
