It's packed with deep, spicy aromas and flavors, layers of berry fruits and has almost enough structure to hold up the glass. It's a blend of Zin, Syrah, Petite Sirah and a few other red grapes. This is a great wine to serve with meat and bold Italian dishes. The wine comes from Shenandoah Vineyards in the Red Hills appellation, a region known for huge temperature swings between days and nights. This is a wine worth seeking out -- and be sure to buy an extra for the cellar. $25.
