From the bottle:
“You wouldn’t expect a sissy blend from a revolutionary. Our new Cru gets big and bold with zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon, syrah, and petite sirah. It’s like the Fab Four of wine — zin the “cute one”, cab the “clever one”, syrah the “quiet one” and petite sirah the “funny one”. Together, they make beautiful music.
When I saw that this wine called out “sissy blends” on its label I have to admit that I got a little worried I could be dealing with a major fruit bomb — but while this is definitely a big wine, it doesn’t go overboard. The 2009 Wine Guerrilla Sonoma County Rebel Cru Red has a nice strong aroma of blackberry, ripe fruit, spice, and vanilla. The wine tastes of blackberry and black cherry with a silky/velvety mouthfeel. The finish is very smooth, almost subdued, and lingers nicely. The 2009 Wine Guerrilla Rebel Cru Red makes a “big and bold” promise and it delivers!
