Wine Stop: Bodacious Shops of Block 42
A rich, dark red, it offers aromas of ripe berries & plums, warmed by a hint of cocoa. Dried fruit & the taste of chocolate-covered cherries come through on the palate, while a wisp of smokiness makes this wine – created from dark red varietals including Zinfandel & Petite Sirah – the perfect complement to grilled meats & full-flavored dishes. Tannins are rounded out by the ripeness of the berries for a texturous but smooth mouth feel. The finish makes us think of lingering at the end of a long evening & still not wanting to go home, with layers of rich flavor that teasingly trail off.
