I know everyone is sick and tired of me wonking Cardella Winery but this is the last one I promise. I am just SO in lurve with this winery. Rarely does one producer woo me across-the-board like Cardella has.
Here we have the lowliest member of their line, a kitchen sink sort of Italian red blend rife in barnyard and earth while maintaining an unsnobby sophistication you keep coming back to. Fruit wild and young and Juicy-Fruit while a dirty-hippy blends gently into an intense grap-ey elixir. Cheap and good ←WHO is going to argue with THAT?!?!?
