2011 Leo Steen Calpella Mendocino County Red

gfdgfdgfdgfdJon Bonné, writing in the San Francisco Chronicle, recommended this Californian red blend of Carignane and Petite Sirah.

He said: “Leo Hansen’s skill with Chenin Blanc has earned him fans, and add to that this effort from the Testa vineyard, old organically farmed Carignane and Petite Sirah in a hamlet north of Ukiah. This is likely the last vintage of the Steen Calpella, so get it while you can: With a smoky, savory side and robust tannins, its sarsaparilla and wild blueberry flavors are perfect for the season.”

Price: $18
