The Cleaver Red Wine 2013. If you’re planning a backyard barbecue this weekend, you won’t find a better match to hamburgers, ribs or pulled pork that this Amador County blend of Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah. Brambly in style, it has juicy blackberry and tobacco flavors.”

2013 “The Cleaver” Red Blend

Wine of the Week: 2013 Cleaver Red Blend

May 15, 2014

The 2013 Cleaver Red Blend is a home run. It hits the palate just right, coating all those taste buds with pure black fruit. Sixteen months in new French oak puts a creamy vanilla touch to this bold and expressive red. A certain crowd-pleaser, The Cleaver is, as its name suggests, designed to go with big cuts of delicious grilled beef. I bet the winery will run out of this one.
