Aroma: cherries, berries
Texture: light-bodied, acidic
50% Zinfandel, 36% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Sirah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot – I have to admit that this wine was not to my taste. It felt thin in both flavor and texture. Clif Family Wines mentioned that the 2010 vintage included a wet spring followed by a long, cool growing season and some late heat spikes. Perhaps this explains my reaction.

Taste: plum, berry
I enjoyed this red much more than The Climber Red. Easy-drinking, tasty on its own or paired with a meal. Packed in a 1.5 L Climber Pouch, easy to carry, easy to pour!
