Tehama Oaks Winery Red Rock Red Wild West Blend 2011

10 Jan

IMG_0454I finally opened the last bottle of wine my aunt brought me from California. The bottle alone gave me the feeling that this was a small, local winery whose wine I wouldn’t be able to find around here, which made me excited. From Tehama Oaks Winery its label read: Red Rock Red, Wild West Blend, 2011 California Red Wine. On it’s website I found out it’s a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah and 5% Petite Syrah. It was named for the famous pro-rodeo bucking bull Red Rock, who is pictured on the label. At 12.46% ABV it cost $24, and I would absolutely pay that for it. While I don’t have specific tasting notes as I brought the bottle to a party and didn’t bother to analyze it closely, I can confidently say it is one of the best wines i’ve had in a long time. Very bold but smooth. It was a delicious blend. If I ever get a chance to visit my aunt I will definitely be checking out the winery and bringing a few bottles home.
