Blackstone 2007 Sonoma Reserve Rubric, one of our Top 10 Mother's Day Wines

RED

Blackstone
2007 Sonoma Reserve Rubric

This red blend is Blackstone winemaker Gary Sitton's take on a Meritage-style Cabernet-based blend. Other varietals in the mix are Malbec; Cabernet Franc; Petit Verdot; Tannat; Merlot; and Petite Sirah. Aromas of cherry, anise, dried herbs and tobacco intertwine with flavors of blackberry pie, caramel and subtle notes of coffee. If mom was always the disciplinarian of the house, we imagine this to be the type of wine she'd enjoy.

Rating: 13.5/20
