Wine Review: 2009 McCay Paisley Lodi Red Blend

Wine Review: 2009 McCay Paisley Lodi Red Blend, California

McCay Paisley Lodi Red Blend: In Lodi, some wines are real diamonds that are sometimes forgotten or were never discovered in the first place. This wine confirms Lodi has got it going on. I love the blend of these two Lodi specialties—Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. This wine Paisley delivers on a grand scale in the key of E for excellent. Full throttle flavors that are plush, luscious and racy all at the same time hitting high and low notes proficiently. Get it and groove on. Its smooth and polished, tasty and tight. It’s nice! Add Smoky BBQ sweet!

 McCay Paisley Lodi Red BlendRating: Excellent (92) | $30 | 14.8% ABV
