Tierra Divina ‘Reds’ 2010

This wine is a winner.  It's composed of Petite Syrah, Carignane, and Zinfandel, which, for me, is a first.  This unique blend comes from Lodi and was benefited by a long, cool, and even growing season in 2010 which gives the wine a smooth, rich and complex profile that can otherwise be disrupted by heat spikes.

The palate is smooth and quite rich, showing dark colors in the glass and deep blackberry and blueberry fruits on the palate.  The purple fruits are complimented by nice minerality  and  a well balanced acidity and tannin profile.  There is a bit of a fruit jumble in the finish, which I would attribute to the Zin, where you gut a mish-mash of different fruits all at once.

This is a great every day drinker that you should feel good about getting into with some friends over a burger or a skirt stake.
