This years’ LA Wine Fest 10th Anniversary was located on the Raleigh studio & it definitely did not disappoint because it was even bigger & better than last years’ event with even more wineries, vendors and breweries.
55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Petite Sirah. Lovely, sweet, jammy. Lighter on its feet than the other wines.
Reyes winery Muscat 2011
delightful blend is a fruit forward, polished wine with well integrated oak notes.
Medium-bodied and superbly structured, intense berry and mocha flavors lead to an impeccable finish with balanced acidity and tannins.

52.6% Front Row Napa Cab, 31.5% Mueller Malbec, 16% Carneros Vintners Petite Sirah.
full bodied and only moderately tannic with beautiful structure and strong fruit. The flavors are complex, and the finish is long and satisfying. This wine is extremely versatile, light enough to accompany any lunch fare, yet a perfect companion to pastas, roasts, steaks and cheeses.
