Clif Family Winery “The Climber” Red Wine 2009 (California)

Do you like Clif bars?   I know I do, especially the chocolate peanut one  :-)  Well, The Climber is a red blend brought to us by the same people who make the ultimate hiking snack.   And speaking of hiking, the nose on this wine reminded me of those blackberries you pick on the side of the trail!   Very ripe berry nose, slight spicy midpalate and a tart, fruity finish.   This wine is a blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Petite Sirah.   Definitely fruit forward, with acidity to stand up to cheeses and grilled meats/veggies.
