Peju’s take on a red/white blend with three reds (Zinfandel, Cabernet, Merlot) and two whites (Riesling, Chardonnay) is a rich but light easy drinking wine.

Aaron:  This is a nice lunch wine, but pretty “juice-like”.  There was a light berry, almost cherry smell with a mildly jammy flavor of strawberry.  While there were lots of fruit flavors, there was no oak to balance, making this a bit on the sweet side but not too bad.  88 points

Teri: I love the light body and full flavor of this red/white blend. It has a lighter red color, but is still darker than a rose. Nothing stands out on the nose but the taste is a beautiful, round, full, and crisp flavor. Full fruit forward flavors of cranberry, blueberry, and strawberry. Long lingering finish of red fruits and faint spice. The taste is versatile and could go well with just about any meal or even calm spicy foods. 90 points
