Tasting Profile

Look

Inky garnet core spreading out first to ruby and then a fushia lip.

Smell

Ripe cherry, juicy plum, subtle leather and tobacco with an allspice kick.

Taste

Black cherry, currant, cola, blackberry, vanilla, gingerbread and butterscotch.

Finish

Fruit forward nature of the Zin compliments the structured tannins of the Cab with bright acidity, leading into an extended finish.

Pairing

You can dress it up with a proper steak dinner - like our Hickory planked ribeye steaks with cowboy butter. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it.

What the experts says

The grape doesn't fall far from the vine with today's TORN 2015 ZIN X CAB Red Blend. This wine was made by our good friend, Addison Rex, the nephew of one of our favorite winemakers, Robert Rex - of Deerfield Ranch Winery fame. We secured a special price for you on this inaugural release of the young Rex's new label!

This two varietal blend has an inky garnet core spreading out first to ruby and then a fuschia lip. The wine has a fragrant nose with a bouquet of bright ripe cherry, juicy plum, subtle leather and tobacco with an allspice kick. The traditional flavor profiles of Cabernet and Zinfandel collide where the black cherry and currant of the Cab meet the blackberry, vanilla, gingerbread and butterscotch of the Zin. The duality of the blend is on display as the fruit forward nature of the Zin compliments the structured tannins of the Cab with bright acidity, leading to an extended finish. It’s both approachable and elegant. You can dress it up with a proper steak dinner - like our Hickory planked ribeye steaks with cowboy butter. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it.

What the winery says

Every varietal is different, with their own quirks and charms. Often we don’t just have one favorite. Each TORN wine is a blend of two varietals so next time you’re stuck deciding between grapes, grab a bottle of TORN and you’ve got the best of both worlds.

The Cabernet Sauvignon is bold, yet smooth and balanced. The Zinfandel is fruit-forward, bright and juicy. It all comes together in this approachable blend bursting with fresh red berry flavor of raspberries with a nice barrel profile of spice.
