Just like the many colors and textures of the calico fabric, Calico Red, weaves together a RTW blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel.

This will be the third release of Calico Red from the "Girls" at Bergevin Lane - Annette, Virginie, and Amber. Since the 2001 release, this has been one of my favorite (and consistent) RTW's from the valley and always affordable at $16.00. To describe the taste I would explain it as a luscious and juicy, like a fresh compote of strawberries, raspberries and other brambleberries. Spicy with black pepper, cocoa, and burnt sugar, but silky finish like caramel.

Calico Red is a wine I would pair with casual dining such as a bar-be-que with smokey sausages, brisket and ribs and even better for that every day sipping wine. Calico Red is a fine example of one of the many affordable and quality red table blends in the valley.
