- Comments Off on Field Recordings Fiction Red – Simple and Subtle Complexity
We’ve talked up Field Recordings before – super tasty white blend and the any-time-of-year rose. Recently we got our hands on some of their red. So tasty.
With a Zinfandel base, it’s lighter than expected, but it’s balanced by six other grapes to create a wine that will shock those who turn up their nose at Zinfandel. It’s got punchy brightness and nearly jammy with blueberry and raspberry notes. The blend, which includes Petite Sirah, Grenache, Syrah, and Tempranillo add their dashes of spice and herbs. Such a simple base with a wide breath of grapes strikes up a mellow complexity ideal for dinner or a party. It’s an unfiltered French and American oaked surprise ready to drink straight out of the bottle. Grab one to have with lunch in the cafe or take one with you to a BYO dinner – it’ll fit right in anywhere. A fantastic wine that even the sharpest tongue will love, but will also have grandma asking for a second glass.
Pick up a bottle for yourself and one for a holiday dinner – no wrong way to share Field Recording’s Red.
