2016 Sineann Red Table Wine, USA, Oregon - Wine Review

Grade: 
A-
Score: 
90

This is one of the great value in wine.  It is a hodgepodge of all the remnants from all the wines Peter Rosback makes combined into one cuvee.  It costs $15 and is always in the 88 to 92 point range.  Sealed with a screw cap, the exact proportions differ from vintage to vintage.  This one has Pinot Noir, Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.  It is purple in color.  The nose has a nice complexity of cherries, red berries, some cassis, dust and spice.  On the palate, there is a bit of depth and plenty of varietal complexity.  Nice balance.  It goes down easy.  What's not to like?  Disclaimer 0 have known Peter since our days together at Purdue in the mid-1970's when he was a geeky engineering student.
